These biscuits are very nice and easy to make - no Mixmaster required and only a saucepan to wash up.
I've doubled the quantities from the original recipe, except for the choc bits and nuts as I thought that the original proportions were too generous. This makes a great biscuit more economical and it still tastes wonderful.
- 180g butter or marg,
- 2/3 cup sugar,
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten,
- 1 cup chopped walnuts (or pecans),
- 2 ½ cups SR Flour,
- 1 packet of choc bits.
- melt butter in large saucepan
- stir in sugar until dissolved - the mixture becomes creamy and most of the butter is incorporated into the sugar.
- allow to cool - important because you don't want to melt the choc bits.
- fold in eggs, walnuts, flour and choc bits.
- drop teaspoonfulls of mixture onto greased or lined baking trays
- bake in moderate oven approximately 15 mins or until nicely browned.
- cool on tray a few minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
The biscuits will keep for about a week in an airtight container or you can freeze the surplus for a couple of months.
