Chocolate Chip Biscuits

    1 hour 40 minutes

    These are a simple and tasty chocolate chip biscuit. I love to them with the kids, make sure there are enough chocolate chips as some may 'disappear' while cooking.

    I chose this chocolate chip biscuits as they had less sugar than a lot of other recipes. This is important to me when cooking for young children. This was a really nice recipe: simple and very tasty. I actually added dried cherries to mine for something different.  -  09 Mar 2013


    Altered ingredient amounts. I added extra raisins as well as the choccy chips and I used caster sugar (just because I didn't have any demerara in!)  -  12 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Not sure about this recipe,had to make quite a few changes ,stork instead of butterly,half chopped nuts and half choc,plus use plain flour or they look like cakes. Only makes 9 decent sized cookies,would definately make extra next time as my kids like their cookies big! If use the recipe again,soft brown sugar would give a nicer looking,softer cookie.  -  03 Dec 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
