These are a melt-in-your-mouth chocolate-chip biscuits with a fluffly texture. I use a wooden spoon to mix these, as the texture seems to be so much better.
1 cup (250ml) vegetable oil
1 cup (250g) white sugar
1 cup (185g) packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
4 1/2 cups (565g) plain flour
2 teaspoons bicarb soda
4 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups dark chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
Preparation:15min › Cook:15min › Extra time:30min cooling › Ready in:1hour
Preheat the oven to 180C.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, oil, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, bicarb soda, cream of tartar and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased baking trays.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until light brown. Allow biscuits to cool on the baking trays for a couple of minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
