do you know, i have some kind of habit to make a to do list about what to cook, what to do, where to go, who i want to meet in every single month, yeah.. weird. haha. and when it comes to july or december i will have an extremely long list. just so you know, i've written 11 dishes to make in my notebook. i'm so not sure i will make all of them, i love to plan everything but when i have to make them come true, i'll feel so lazy. back to the list, i've checked 2 foods from 11, wanna know what? it's rainbow chiffon cake and this soft chocolate centers biscuit. still long way to go..
i got the recipe from Jamie Oliver. he has lot's of luscious recipe, i can't even choose one to be the most tempting. you should come and visit his web, look for some recipes, and try! after all, i have to say my biscuits don't have cute shapes, they look miserable. i want them look like Jamie's, i should practice more.
Soft Chocolate Center Biscuits
from Jamie Oliver
yields 30-40 biscuits
140 gr butter
140 gr caster / granulated sugar
2 egg yolks
255 gr self raising flour
30 gr cocoa powder
30 squares of chocolate (milk, plain, or white)
- grease a large baking sheet. cream the butter and sugar together until pale. beat in the egg yolks, then add the flour and cocoa powder to make a dough. turn out and knead, then pop it into the fridge for a while. preheat the oven to 190 degree C (gas mark 5 / 375 degree F).
- on a lightly floured surface, roll about a third of the dough out thinly, then cut out about 30 circles with the smaller cutter (4 cm). spread them out on the baking sheet and put a square of chocolate in the middle of each one. then roll the rest of the dough out, cut out the same number of circles with the larger cutter (5 cm) and pop them on top of the chocolate, pressing gently all the way round to seal the edge and keep all the chocolate in.
- cook in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, and eat them hot or cold.
notes from me:
- please remember that white chocolates are sweeter than milk chocolates and milk chocolates are sweeter than dark chocolate. soo.. if you use dark chocolate squares to fill the biscuits, stick with the amount of sugar written. if you use milk chocolate squares, i think it's wiser to reduce 50 gr of the sugar. if you want to use white chocolate, maybe you can reduce about 75 to 100 grams of sugar. well, it's just my preference. you can adjust them according to your sweet-tooth. :)
