IMG_5491 (2)Whilst the children are at home on holiday from school get them baking these domino chocolate biscuits, which are quite easy to do especially if you have a rectangle cutter.

I do not have one so had to do it by hand!  You can make about 24-30 biscuits with this mixture.

 

 

 

 

 

  • Oven 180 C 350 F  gas mark 4
  • Two or three greased baking sheets
  • 5 oz butter
  • 5 oz caster sugar
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 8 oz plain flour
  • 2 oz ground almonds
  • 1 oz cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Either melted white chocolate for the dots or icing made with icing sugar and water

Cream the butter and sugar together until smooth and creamy the add the egg and continue to beat well.  Sift the flour, baking powder IMG_5490and cocoa together and add to the bowl with the ground almonds, mix together until you have a stiff dough.

Roll out to a rectangle and cut into domino sized oblongs.  Leave a little space between them on the baking sheet and cook for 10-15 minutes until firm.  ​

Leave to cool on the sheets and then transfer to a wire rack.  Use either the icing or the melted white chocolate and pipe lines and spots on the biscuits to look like domino’s.  They will keep in an air-tight tin for a week unless they are all eaten on the same day! – JAB
