Choc Chip Bickies ( Cookies )

I love a good biscuit to go with my cup of tea in the afternoon.  Here's the latest recipe I've been baking.

250g of butter
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
2 eggs
3 1/2 cups of self raising flour
200g packet of choc chips

Cream the butter and sugar with electric beaters  until light and fluffy
Add the eggs and beat until well combined.
Stir in the flour  then the choc chips.
Roll level tablespoonfuls of dough into balls
Place on a greased tray and flatten.
Bake at 150 degrees / 150 degrees Celsius fan forced for 15 minutes.
Cool on trays then transfer to a wire rack
Store in an air tight container

Makes about 50 - 60 biscuits.

VARIATIONS -

*  Choc / orange.  Add grated orange zest from two oranges to the egg,  sugar and butter mix.  Choc chips can be added on top of the dough balls or added with the flour

*  Lemon / pistachio.  Add lemon zest of two lemons to the egg,  butter and sugar mix.  Add the pistachios with the flour

*  Peanuts can be added to the wet mix or pushed into the dough balls then flatten

*  Sugar biscuits.  Roll the dough balls in sugar then flatten on the tray.

*  Dried fruit.  Chop finely and add to the dough when adding the flour
 

NOTES -

*  You can omit the choc chips and flavour the dough with different ingredients.

*  Dough can be frozen for future baking.  Roll into logs then freeze on a tray.  Place in a clean bread bag or container and return to the freezer.  Can be frozen for 6 - 9 months.

  2. Wendy have you had any success at finding recipe's that use less butter? I only buy black and gold as it is so expensive to buy. Regards Robyne S.A

    1. I've done a bit of research for biscuits and the butter content seems to be about the same or the recipe uses margarine which I'm not fond of.

  4. Hello Wendy, I trust you had a ball on the weekend with the ladies from your craft group. What a wonderful catch up - interstate! I am going to try your recipe as I tried a recent recipe found for choc chips which is an Amish recipe. It used plain flour and cream of tarter and baking soda. Each time I used bi carb soda, I find the taste is not nice, so I won't be making this recipe again. Will let you know how they go. Fondly, Robyn S.A
