Chocolate macadamia biscuits


  • 250g butter, softened
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups White Wings Plain Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • Method

    1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 3 baking trays with baking paper.
    2. Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugars and vanilla together until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.
    3. Sift flour and baking powder over butter mixture. Add nuts and chocolate. Stir with a large metal spoon until well combined.
    4. Drop heaped tablespoonfuls of mixture onto baking trays. Bake, 1 tray at a time, for 12 to 15 minutes or until light golden and firm to the touch (not crisp). Repeat with remaining trays. Stand on trays for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
