We all love a good biscuit, but there's something even more satisfying when you've made them yourself and you think they're the mutts nuts, especially when you're a gluten free type chick. Gloating? Yes! So I want to present to you one of my favourite biscuit recipes by Green & Blacks, I've tweaked it so it uses half the sugar and gluten free flour but It's totally fool proof and ridiculously yummy.
Makes about 20
• 125g salted butter
• 75g organic golden caster sugar
• 1 medium egg
• 1 tsp of vanilla extract
• 140g gluten free plain flour (I find Doves a good one to use)
• 1/2 tsp baking powder
• 1/2 tsp ground rock salt
• 75g gluten free oats
• 150g high quality 70% cocoa chocolate, Green&Black's or Lindtts are mighty fine.
• Preheat the oven to 180ºC / 160ºC fan / Gas Mark 4
1. Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
2. Add the flour, baking powder, salt and oats and mix in the chocolate to form a dough. Put it in the fridge for 10 minutes.
3. Take a small ball of dough about the size of a plum and roll them in your hands. Place on a baking sheet lined with greaseproof paper, spacing them apart to allow for them reading as they cook. Flatten each ball slightly with your hand an place int he oven and cook for 15-17 minutes.
4. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a tray for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack and leave them to cool down completely....if you can!
Let me know if you make them and like them and what else you add in.
