Every Saturday my fiancee's family is coming around for tea so this week I've decided to make something easy and delicious.


  • - 2 eggs
  • - 4 tbsp of sugar
  • - apricot jam
  • - 60g flour
  • - vanilla essence

- one chocolate for decorating

  • - one tbsp of butter


  • STEP 1
    Separate the eggs and beat the egg whites until stiff, add the sugar then the egg yolks one by one and mix well.
  • STEP 2
    Add the flour and mix with a wooden spoon until you get a light dough.
  • STEP 3
    When the dough is ready form the biscuits with a spoon or a piping bag and put them on a tray with greaseproof paper. Put them in the oven at gas 5/180C for 5-7 minutes.
  • STEP 4
    In the meantime melt the chocolate with the butter.
  • STEP 5
    When the biscuits are done take them out of the oven and put them on a grill on top of a sheet of grease proof paper. Put half of tablespoon of apricot jam on every biscuit.
  • STEP 6
    Coat the biscuits in chocolate.
  • STEP 7
    Put them in the fridge for at least an hour or until the chocolate sets.
