Another post from Norah’s party! These biscuits went down a treat, quite literally! I made up lots of mini bear biscuits too with the mix for other bakes. I do love a biscuit and my go to recipe didn’t disappoint.
I saw the bear paw idea on Pinterest and I loved just how simple it is! One chocolate button and three chocolate chips. As easy as that. You can even make up the biscuit dough well in advance too, it makes it easier to handle and helps keep that perfect circle shape.
You will need:
250g butter, softened
140g caster sugar
1 egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
250g plain flour
chocolate buttons (I used one bag)
chocolate chips (I used one bag, and had lots spare)
Preheat your oven to 180C/Gas 4. And line three baking trays with parchment paper.
Mix the butter and sugar together in a large bowl. Beat until fluffy.
Add the egg yolk, vanilla and flour and mix together to form a dough. It might take a little bit of work.
Leave to chill in the fridge for at least an hour (overnight makes the dough even easier to handle).
Roll out the dough to an inch thick and using a round cutter, cut a circle. in the middle of the circle place a chocolate button and then three chocolate chips above to create the “paw”. Do this until all the mixture has been used.
Bake for 10 minutes or until the edges start to turn light brown.
Leave too cool completely and enjoy!
