chocolate biscuits

8 oz butter, softened

4 oz icing sugar

6 oz plain flour

2 oz cornflour

2 oz cocoa powder

45g bar of dark chocolate


In a mixer, cream the sugar and butter together. Add the flour, cornflour and cocoa powder. Cut the chocolate up into chips using a large knife, and add to the cookie mixture.

Pull the mixture out of the bowl and shape into a sausage (feeling for even distribution of chocolate chips). Cut into 16 even pieces. Roll each piece into a ball shape then place on a baking sheet (no need to grease), and press down with the prongs of a folk into a biscuit shape. Repeat with the others.

Bake at about 150C for 30 minutes. Cool just enough to slide off onto a wire rack, allow to cool completely (as if- we always eat some warm!)
