If I had to pick my favourite type of biscuit in the world, I think it would have to be a good old chocolate chip biscuit. You really can't beat them for simplicity and taste. They're the perfect match for your mid-morning coffee and a classic lunchbox treat.
This recipe is from a Donna Hay cookbook and has been converted to the Thermomix. This is the only chocolate chip biscuit recipe I ever use anymore. It really is the best!
You end up with the most deliciously fluffy chocolate chip biscuits that are so soft on the inside. Oh and whatever you do, you MUST eat one of these biscuits while they are still warm, straight out of the oven... AMAZING! The chocolate chips are all gooey and oozy. Yum!
Are you a chocolate chip biscuit fan too?
Chocolate Chip Biscuits
