What do you do when you’re in a long distance relationship and you have most of your weekends for yourself? I read and bake. I have been quite the lazy ass lately and haven’t baked in a long time though. Last week, I decided to get back into baking and tried a raspberry meringue pie. DI-SA-STER! The curd did not set and leaked everywhere. I love meringue pies so I’ll try it again later. Today I tried biscuits and it worked quite well. So, here’s my milk chocolate-dipped vanilla biscuit recipe!
-185g soften butter
-200g caster sugar
-1.5 tsp vanilla extract
-200g milk chocolate
1. Mix the soften butter (not melted, just soften), sugar and vanilla extract in a bowl. The mixture must not be smooth or liquid but more looking like soft buttery crumbs. Use an electric whip or food processor.
2. Add the flour and egg. Mix with your hands until the mixture forms a dough.
3. Take the dough out of the bowl. Knead to bring it together in a ball. Wrap the dough in cling film and place in the fridge for 30 minutes. Pre-heat the oven at 180°C.
4. Roll the dough out on a floured surface. The flatten dough must be 5mm thick.
5. Use a cookie cutter to cute the dough and give shape to the biscuits. Place the raw biscuits on a baking sheet on a baking tray and put in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
6. Let cook until brown and remove from oven to let cool down.
7. Chop the chocolate and place it in a glass bowl. Set the bowl in the mouth of a saucepan with simmering water, making sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl. Stir chocolate occasionally as it softens. When you have just a few small unmelted chunks, remove bowl from heat
8. Dip lower half of each biscuit into chocolate mixture; allow excess to drip back into the bowl. Place on a cooling rack. Add decoration and place in the fridge to allow the chocolate to cool.
9. Pour yourself a cup of tea and enjoy!
What do you think of my vanilla biscuit recipe? Aren’t these mouth-watering? I’ve got thirty in my kitchen so good things I have flatmates who can help me eat them! Both chocolate and decoration aren’t compulsory but they made for better pictures! Will you try this recipe?
Thanks a lot for stopping by. Hope you liked this post
