    Makes: 40 biscuits

    • 125g butter
    • 125g margarine
    • 1 cup white sugar
    • 2 cups (250g) plain flour

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
    2. Cream together the butter, margarine, sugar and vanilla.
    3. Sift together the flour, bicarb soda and salt. Add to sugar mixture and mix well, being careful not to over mix.
    4. Drop heaping teaspoonfuls of dough on ungreased baking trays and flatten each with the tines of a fork (dip fork into small bowl of water so that dough doesn't stick to fork).
    5. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes. After each tray is removed from the oven, carefully place 5 or 6 chocolate chips on top of each biscuit while they are still hot. When chocolate is glossy and soft, spread with a knife.

    I think that these turned out great! I didn't modify the ingredients at all, but I did modify the process of making them. I flattened them with my hand and then used a round cookie cutter to shape each cookie. During the last 5 minutes of baking I carefully placed the chocolate chips on the cookies to ensure that they were melted so they would spread evenly. Doing it this way takes a little more time but I think the end result is worth it (as you can tell by the photo). I am going to try these in heart shapes and maybe use mint or orange extract instead of vanilla for Valentines day for my son's 2nd grade class.  -  20 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My children and I made it for our school's annual Heritage Day. It was so easy! My kids said it was one of the best cookies they have ever had.  -  09 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This cookie was extremely easy to make and turned out wonderful. I found it easier to use your hands to scoop the dough versus using teaspoons. And because the dough was a little crumbly I added 1/4 cup water.  -  13 Apr 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
