Granny Amos' Chocolate Biscuits

We have been so lucky to have one of our Puremess Family share their treasured recipe with us! My favourite part of the recipe is the 4 drops of vanilla!  I'm not sure that vanilla comes in dropper bottles anymore so I've guessed at 1/2 teaspoon. Thank you so much Anneli for sharing this recipe. 


4 oz.  Butter or margarine

2 oz. Castor sugar

4 oz. Self-raising flour

1 oz. Cocoa

4 drops Vanilla essence



Heat oven to 180 degrees

Cream the butter and sugar, add the vanilla and work into the flour and cocoa until well mixed together.

Form into small balls about half the size of a walnut and place on a greased baking sheet.  Flatten the balls with the back of a fork dipped in cold water to create stripes.

Cook for 12 - 15 minutes.

When cold, sandwich together with a filling made of butter, sugar, cocoa and water.

So my boys and I made these and actually sandwiched them together with ice cream and popped them in freezer as a treat! They worked so well and are absolutely delicious.

Happy munching everyone!
