Baking biscuits with little children is one of the great joys in life, so if you have kids around, get the aprons on and get them involved. Accept that it will make a terrible mess. As we say in our house: “it doesn’t matter”.
125 grams softened unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1.5 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (not essence)
100 gram block of dark chocolate (or 100g choc chips) – chopped into little pieces
50 grams almonds – smashed up in a pestle & mortar, or chopped into little pieces
¼ cup sultanas
Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Beat the butter and sugar until creamy, this will be easier in a mix master if you have one. Add the beaten egg, milk and vanilla and beat until combined. Sift in the flour and baking powder. Gently fold in the flour. When combined, fold in the chocolate, almonds and sultanas.
Using a teaspoon roll balls in your palm and place on baking tray, pressing down slightly. Bake for 15 minutes.
