Going Nutty - Choc-chip Nut Biscuits

Work has been pretty overwhelming but maybe more for the fact that I feel I am just going to work out of obligation and am bewildered at what to do once this job ends (I am in a bond with the hospital ending next May).

Besides that, life has been pretty cushy but just haven't found the time to get this recipe onto the screen. :/ sorry!

This biscuits were great! Like I've said before, I'm not a huge fan of plain chocolate so these biscuits speckled with crunchy nuts were just my cup of tea! :D

From the Greatest-ever Chocolate Cookbook...

INGREDIENTS (makes 36)
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 tsp double-acting baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp butter/margarine
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • 1/3 brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup plain semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup hazelnuts, chopped
  1. Mix butter and sugars in bowl until smooth and creamy
  2. Add in egg and vanilla extract
  3. In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking powder and salt together
  4. Add flour mixture to batter and beat well until all incorporated
  5. Add in the chocolate chips and half the hazelnuts and mix well
  6. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C and line cookie trays with parchment paper
  7. Spoon teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto the cookie trays allowing space to spread (approx. 5cm apart).
  8. Using a wet fork, gently flatten the biscuits and sprinkle the remaining nuts on top of the biscuits and press lightly into surface
  9. Bake for 10-12 mins until golden brown
  10. Cool on wire rack before serving
