Chocolate Chip Biscuit

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

This is a deliciously soft choc chip biscuit that everybody will enjoy.


Do not over bake as these cookies are delicious soft.  I find they taste better using butter rather than margarine.  You could easily substitute the milk choc chips with smarties or m&m’s as a fun alternative, or even more delicious some white chocolate and macadamia.

My recipe for these is very similar however I substitute Wholemeal Flour for the plain to make them a bit "healthier"

I also use M&M's instead of choc bits and sometimes add some cinnamon (1/2 tsp) too 🙂

Katrina I made these today – beautiful ! However can someone PLEASE tell me if I can freeze a container of these already made???

Hi Jenanddanny
You would be better off rolling the dough into a log and freezing it before they are baked, or you could roll them into the balls, freeze them individually before putting into a container in the freezer so that you can pull out a couple to bake when needed. I would not freeze them once cooked as they do not thaw all that well.

Do you think this recipe would work ok if I replaced the flours for gluten free flour Use gluten free plain flour and gluten free SR flour where it asks for plain flour and SR flour in the recipe. But keep everything else the same in the recipe? Thanks

I haven’t tried that myself. I’d love to hear if it works for you!
