Friday Food: Choc Chip Hazelnut Biscuits

Choc chip hazelnut biscuits               Miss NewHouse at The Wool Shop can't have gluten and so a few weeks ago I found this recipe by Donna Hay: Choc Chip Hazelnut Cookies, well I say biscuits. They are gluten free. Then I was poorly, and then I baked a Banoffe Sheet Cake and Lamington Jam Drops, but today was the day for these biscuits.

As is my wont, I substituted almond meal for the hazelnut, and coconut flour for the cornflour. Coconut flour is more absorbent, so I added extra melted butter and then a tad more coconut flour until the dough felt "right". I added the whole packet of dark choc chips.

I baked them for an extra 5 minutes. They didn't spread at all. The first batches stayed as a rounded dome, so I squashed the last tray flatter. Honestly, I think semi-flat would be best. I made 17 x 40ml biscuits. Please feel free to follow the recipe!!!

Mis NewHouse thoroughly recommends the biscuits, she ate one, and then had another. I am very pleased that she is able to enjoy this recipe.

 

 

Choc Chip Hazelnut Biscuits      makes 12-17

  • 175g hazelnut meal
  • 40g cornflour
  • 110g caster sugar
  • 60g brown sugar
  • 1 tspn baking powder
  • 100g butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tspn vanilla extract
  • 150-200g dark choc chips, or chopped chocolate

 

Preheat the oven to 160*c and line two trays with baking paper.

Dry ingredients

Put the hazelnut meal, sugars, cornflour, and baking powder into a large bowl and mix well to combine.

Add wet and chocolate

Make a well in the centre and add the butter, egg and vanilla extract. Mix well and then stir through the chocolate.

Measure out 2 tablespoons, (2x 20ml) for each biscuit. Squeeze together slightly and roll into a ball. Place on the tray and flatten slightly leaving an 8cm gap between biscuits.

And bake and cool

Bake for 10-12 minutes, I swapped and turned the trays half way though. Cool an the tray for 5 minutes and then remove to a wire rack.

The last of Miss NH's biscuit

I could not ask Miss NewHouse to eat another biscuit, just for my blog: Or could I?
