  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 85g custard powder
  • 85g white chocolate, chopped into small chunks

Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line 2-3 baking sheets with baking parchment. Put the butter and sugar in a food processor and whizz until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla, and mix well. Sift together the flour and custard powder, then tip into the bowl and pulse to mix into a dough. Scrape out the food processor and work the chocolate in by hand.

  2. Roll the dough into balls a little smaller than a walnut, then place on the baking sheets, a little apart to allow for spreading. Press each biscuit down lightly with your fingers.

  3. Bake for 12-15 mins until lightly golden. Remove and cool on a wire rack.

i've made these probably nigh on over a hundred times for many yrs. know how to make them off by heart now. they're lush. my family love them. they work every time and are a true delight and we're fussy! ;-) sometimes i swap the white choc chips for fudge chips and thats a nice alternative too. but one thing i must add to this comment is i ALWAYS use the 100g pack of chips, never a mere 50g. when i tried that first time it was sparse. :-(

Delicious and easy. I made 29 from this mixture and they are a decent size. I didn't want to buy a whole tin of custard powder (my family love ready made custard so I wouldn't use the rest of the tin) so I bought a packet of instant custard and substituted that mixed with the flour, this worked well. I will definitely make these again.

Also, make sure you leave enough space between the biscuits, as they will spread out during cooking :-)

these biscuits are soo yummy. I will bake them 4th time today, everyone I gave them is asking for recipe and cant stop complementing on them. They are also easy to make and kids love to help. Super cookies :) Im using usually about 130g sugar, otherwise they are a bit too sweet.

Put the mixture in the fridge or freezer for a short while before you start to roll into balls. This makes the mixture easier to handle when you're rolling it.

I used white 2 x 100grs of white chocolate chips, and it gave this nice gooey texture!! You can also make giant biscuits, which can be a nice dessert with an ice cream scoop :-)
