Five simple ingredients, six if you count a pinch of salt! These could not be easier to make.
No creaming butter or chilling the dough. Simply mix, knead, roll, cut and bake. That actually makes them sound more complicated than they are.
Of course a biscuit is always better when topped with chocolate. Who would choose a plain digestive over a chocolate one? I created this simple recipe for Homecook to provide a simple after school biscuit bake option. Of course they equally make the perfect combo to your morning coffee or tea, whether you’re working from home or just sitting down to catch a break in between school runs.
