Chocolate biscuit

A cup of tea with biscuit or cake is a very British treat. Nothing beats it, when 5.00 strikes and a nice selection of biscuits are at hand! Most biscuits are a favourite, custard creams, jammy dodgers or chocolate hobnobs. But I do like to make a batch of homemade cookies to gave at hand in my cookie jar.
I picked up this simple recipe from my mum as she used this as a base for every type of biscuit from chocolate to orange. I love them-a rich buttery flavour so delicate that just makes you want another!

Roll into a flat discs then chill for at least 1 hour so that the dough can settle

Divide the dough into 4 pieces, and then roll out each one to a thickness of 5mm and cut into shapes

Bake for 6-10 minutes

Leave to cool on a wire rack, then enjoy
