Delicious Everyday Cookie


Afghan Biscuits

not sure why they are called that and there is plenty of theories but none of that matters what does matter is the biscuit itself and here is my version of the recipe.

Biscuit Ingredients

200g Butter soft
1/2 cup Castor Sugar
1 1/4cups Plain Flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Chia seeds (optional)
1/4 cup Cocoa
2 cups Cornflakes


Biscuit Method

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Sift in the flour, baking powder and cocoa.
Mix in well then fold in the cornflakes and chia seeds.
Spoon onto baking paper covered trays and press tops down with back of spoon.
(I usually use my hands instead of a spoon much faster and then just use two fingers to flatten them down)


Chocolate Icing Ingredients

200g Dark Chocolate
1/2 cup Cream
25g Butter
Walnuts (traditionally they had a piece of walnut placed on top but optional)


Icing Method

Break the Chocolate into a small bowl then add the cream and butter.

Microwave on medium power for 1-2 mins until chocolate has melted.

Stir every 20 seconds.

Beat until thick and then ice your biscuits finishing with the Walnut.
