    Serves: 36 

    • 9 tablespoons butter, softened
    • 10 tablespoons white sugar
    • 3 egg whites
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla essence
    • 1 1/2 cups (185g) plain flour
    • 185g dark chocolate, melted

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Lightly grease baking trays.
    2. In a medium bowl cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg whites one at a time until batter is light and fluffy. Stir in the vanilla. Mix in the flour just until blended. Dough will be a little stiff. Force through a pastry bag with a medium star tip onto lightly buttered baking trays. Make each biscuit about 8cm long.
    3. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven until straw-coloured. When cool, dip one end of each biscuit in melted chocolate and place on wax paper until chocolate hardens. Store in a cool place.

    The cookies turned out good. They don’t taste like sugar cookies though, more like shortbread. My chocolate chips started to cool before I got all the cookies dipped and then the cookie would break when I tried to pull it out f the chocolate. I would suggest adding something like butter to the chocolate chips to thin it out.  -  04 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe is excellent! I got a lot of compliments. I used a cookie press and they looked like store-bought cookies. Caution if you use a press add flour. A pastry brush helps apply the chocolate. This recipe is quick and easy.  -  19 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
