Chocolate Chip Biscuits
This biscuit recipe has been really popular amongst my friends and family over the years. It reminds me of my uni days and a friend who used to help me eat them. Liam had a little friend from kinder over to play this afternoon, so Noah helped me cook these in readiness.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 3/4 cup self-raising flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
125g (or so) chocolate chips
Cream together the butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla essence. Add the egg, and then the flour and the salt.
Add the chocolate chips, roll into small balls and flatten slightly. Even if it's only enough to stop them from rolling around on the tray. Place them on a tray lined with baking paper. Leave lots of space around them, they spread out a bit. I made 30 biscuits and spread them over two trays.
Bake in a moderate oven for about ten minutes or until golden.
If you've got one of those ovens that burns the bottom of everything, place an extra, empty biscuit tray on one of the lower shelves.
