Super Easy Chocolate Chip Biscuits


Now who doesn’t like Chocolate Chip Biscuits? They are easy thing to make that seem to appeal to a lot of taste buds. I always seem to be making some sort of basic biscuit, but occasionally I like to splash out and make something a bit sweeter. Keeps Mr Chocolate happy, The Monkeys quiet and gives a mama something to dunk into an afternoon pick-me-up coffee. Also a good thing to take around to a friends house… or a neighbour, or that family down the street that are now cleaning up flood water.

Go on, what are you waiting for…

Chocolate Chip Biscuits

125gms softened butter

1/3 cup muscavado sugar (or other dark unrefined sugar)

1 beaten egg

1 tps vanilla

2/3 cup plain flour

2/3 cup s/r flour

2/3 cup choc chips

Mix ingredients in that order. Roll into balls, squish them down. Bake at 180C until golden.

Now how easy is that?

        3/4 cup sugar
        3/4 cup brown sugar

        cream butter and sugars add each additional ingredient stirring after each, drop by the tsp onto baking sheet bake at 350 for about 8 min.
        toll house is our “leading brand” of chocolate chips here in the states.
        During the depression, my grandmother made them with half of the butter and half of the chips and reduced sugars as well…can be done, but not quite as good.
