Chocolate Chippie Biscuits

mini chocolate chip cookies
This is a recipe that’s been in the family forever, origin unknown. It’s very simple and quick to throw together. And it tastes delish. For variety it’s also nice to try adding chopped dried apricots, or chopped nuts into the mix. The cookie is almost shortbready in colour and taste and it also works well for making thumbprint cookies, just leave the dough plain and make an indent in the center of each cookie to fill with jam.

It’s not the most exciting or original recipe I know, but this one is such a staple in our family I hope you’ll give it a try…

Chocolate Chippie Biscuits

Makes 2 dozen

  • 125g Butter
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips

Cream the butter and sugar together then stir in the condensed milk. Add the flour, baking powder and chocolate chips and stir to combine. Don’t worry if the dough looks too crumbly to form into balls just add a little more condensed milk until it looks more clumpy.

Roll into small (walnut sized) ball and flatten slightly onto a baking tray. Bake at 180C for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on the tray for 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.

Enjoy with a long cool glass of milk 🙂
