Toll House Biscuits

I have been going through my recipe folder, tidying and discardng. So many of my recipes are just a list of ingredients and a few words to explain the technique. This one for Toll House Biscuits is a good example -scribbled on a piece of envelope.  It goes 4 oz butter, 1 cup sug, 1 egg, 2 scant cups SR flour. Beat but & sug, add rest. Mix in 1/2 pkt choc chips and handful walnuts. bake mod slow ov 15 min. I have no idea where it came from or who gave me the recipe but I must have liked the biscuits enough to have written the recipe down.

 Growing up we used a teacup to measure and not a metric cup so perhaps that might explain the two scant cups of flour. The recipe has been replaced with this one - a tested and more user friendly version.

Toll House Biscuits
125 g soft butter
1 cup caster sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 ¾ cups SR Flour
½ packet choc chips (1 cup)
1/3 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
Cream butter and sugar, add vanilla and egg and beat again.

Mix in flour, choc chips and walnuts.

Roll mixture into small balls, place on greased tray / Gladbake and press to flatten slightly. They spread a little so allow space around the biscuits.

Make at 160 deg until pale golden brown, approx 12 minutes.

Cool slightly on trays and then transfer to cooling rack.
