Baking Friday - Choc dipped Biscuits







After a gap in baking dates, we are back and baking at LB towers! This week we decided on these easy, tasty biscuits. Scarlett particularly enjoys using our brand new cookie cutters, and is skilled in pushing them into the dough!
We baked a tin full, which are being nibbled as we speak.......

Ingredients:
300g plain flour
100g caster sugar
1 egg
200g butter
finely grated lemon peel
tsp ground cinnamon

Method:

-Mix all ingredients in a bowl
-Knead well by hand
-Roll out dough and use cookie cutters to make shapes
-Bake in 180/gas mark 4 oven for 12-15 mins (depending on oven type)
-Melt 100g chocolate (we used milk) and dip one half of cooled biscuits into chocolate. Place dipped biscuits on silicone sheet/clingfilm.
-Before chocolate sets, you could sprinkle decorations into it.
-Leave to set at room temp or fridge to speed up process
- Enjoy!
