Chocolate Chip Biscuits

Chocolate Chip Biscuits3

This recipe for Chocolate Chip Biscuits contains sweetened condensed milk, so the dough tastes absolutely fantastic when raw, but the biscuits are a little bit dry when cooked.

125gm butter
1/4 Cup caster sugar
1/4 Cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
One and a half Cups plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 Cup chocolate chips

Cream the butter and sugar. Beat in the vanilla extract and sweetened condensed milk. Beat in the flour and baking powder alternately with the chocolate chips.

At this point, don’t let your favourite son in law anywhere near the electric beaters, in case he threatens to turn them on while you are scraping the dough off with a knife. (He was joking when we were making Christmas pudding, but I always think of him and make sure I have turned the power point off at the off at the wall before I put the knife into the beaters now).

Roll the dough into teaspoon sized balls and press down with a fork, before baking at 160 degrees Celsius for 12 minutes. This recipe makes about 30 biscuits.
