About this recipe:
We actually call these chocolate fork biscuits in our house because you roll the mixture into balls and then flatten them with a fork!
225g butter or cooking margarine
110g caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
225g self raising flour
icing sugar and chopped nuts (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Line 2 trays with baking paper.
- Cream butter with sugar and vanilla essence in a mixing bowl. Mix in flour and cocoa.
- Divide into pieces the size of a walnut and roll into balls. Place on prepared baking tray and flatten with a fork dipped in cold water.
- Bake for 7-10 minutes until the cookies start to look firm. Dust with icing sugar or sprinkle with chopped nuts if you like.
Just like my mum used to make! Been looking for a recipe for a while!
