Recipe: Double Choc Shortbread Biscuits in 2 steps

This Sunday we went along to our nephew's baptism and were asked to bring along a little something to share with teas and coffees after the church service.

There were already lots of cakes being taken along so I thought some chocolate biscuits would be a welcome addition.
I do love an easy recipe so this one didn't fail to disappoint; it was even quick enough to do from start to finish while I was getting ready on Sunday morning!

You will need:
  • 175g softened butter
  • 85g caster sugar
  • 200g plain flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 100g chocolate chips

Step 1

Mix the butter and sugar together with a wooden spoon. When it is combined add the dry ingredients and the chocolate chips. Smoosh it all together with your hands to combine. Once you've got your dough, roll it into a log shape and pop it in some cling film. Then just leave in the fridge to chill, ideally for an hour or so (long enough to do your hair and make up if you are off to a baptism too...!)

Step 2
Pop the oven on to 180C and slice your biscuit log into rounds about a centimetre thick and put them onto a baking try lined with baking paper. They'll cook in around 12-15 minutes, once they're done just leave them on the tray to cool before sharing / eating them all up.
