White Chocolate and Ginger Biscuits


A discount confectionery shop recently opened at my local shops. The stock changes all the time, so if you see a product you want, you need to grab it then and there as it may not be available the next time you shop.

A couple of months ago the shop was selling 230 gram packets of Cadbury White Chocolate Baking Chips for $1. The chocolate chips were almost out of date, but as chocolate doesn’t really go off I bought ten packs, and have been making biscuits almost constantly since then. I adapted the recipe from the packet to create these.

125 gm butter

1/2 C brown sugar

1/3 C caster sugar

1 egg

1 tspn vanilla extract

1 and a 1/2 C self raising flour

1/2 C white chocolate chips

60 gm chopped glace ginger

Cream the butter and sugars together and then beat in the vanilla extract and the egg.

Fold in the flour using a metal spoon, then mix in the chocolate chips and ginger.

Roll the mixture into teaspoon sized balls, then bake at 160.C for approximately 12 to 15 minutes. Let the biscuits cool on the tray for a few minutes before moving to a wire rack.

Makes about 40 biscuits.
