Chocolate Chippie Biscuits

This is another Manual Training recipe. (1960's school cooking) I have lost the recipe but have made it so many times I can just make it from memory (well it might be memory or just made up as I go along, but it works!!!!) And to be honest the ones in the photo are a little over cooked. It's a biscuit that changes colour quickly so watch it near the end of cooking time.


125g butter
1/3 cup sugar
3 TBSP condensed milk (Try not to eat too much of that while you are spooning it out!)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1 - 1 1/3 cups flour
1/3 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 180 C
Soften the butter and sugar (I use the microwave for about 20 seconds - you don't want it to melt)
Cream the butter, sugar and condensed milk until it is light and fluffy.
Beat in the vanilla.
Slowly beat in the flour and baking powder. Just add the first cup.
Add the chocolate chips. If the mixture is still too sticky to roll in your hands add some more flour but just about a tablespoon at a time. You don't want the mixture to go crumbly.
Roll into balls (I actually weighed one so you would know how big they are and it was 20gr).
Place on a baking paper lined tray (or lightly greased) a few centimetres apart and press down with a fork. If the fork gets stuck to the biscuit dip the fork in some plain flour.)
Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes but watch them. You just want them to turn slightly golden around the edges.
Cool on a rack.
