Elijah's Crunchy Choc Chip Bikkies

Elijah had been asking to make biscuits but I didn't have all the ingredients for my usual chewy choc chip cookies.  With only a little butter left we decided we'd just go with what I know about biscuit making and make our own recipe (or experiment).  Thankfully they turned out well - crunchy but crisp and super sweet!

100 grams butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 3/4 cups self-raising flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup choc drops

Cream the butter and sugars then add the egg and mix well.

Measure out the flour, salt and choc drops and stir to mix them.  Add this flour mix to the butter mix and carefully stir to mix - you might need to use your hands.

Roll into small balls (about a teaspoonful) then use a fork to lightly flatten them.

Place in an oven heated to 180 degrees celcius and bake for about 10 minutes or until golden.

picnik is not behaving for me this morning so I'm using Photovisi to make collages - a slow process but very easy.

Happy Anniversary Auckland!
