  • 115g Butter, unsalted
  • 175g Plain Flour
  • 50g Caster Sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 100g Chocolate Chips
  • Icing Sugar, for the top


  1. Preheat oven to 180°c / 160°c fan / gas mark 4 and line a tray with baking parchment. Beat the butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl until creamy. Add the salt, flour and chocolate chips and stir altogether until it forms a doughy mixture.

  2. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll out until roughly 1cm thick and stamp out your biscuit shapes. Keep re-rolling the leftover dough and cutting, until you don't have enough space left. Don't waste the little bit that's left, mould it into a silly shape and bake that too.

  3. Arrange them on the baking tray, spaced slightly apart. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until lightly golden. Cool for 5 minutes then move to a wire rack to finish cooling. Enjoy!

Very good, sometimes I add dried fruit instead of choc chips.
