I adapted the Afghan biscuit recipe from More Cape Malay Cooking by Faldela Williams
This biscuit is so called because it resembles that of an Afghan turban, writes the late Faldela Williams.
200g soft butter
1/2 cup castor sugar
1 & 1/2 cups cake flour, sifted
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 cup cornflakes
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Milk chocolate to finish
Pre-heat oven to 180°C.
Cream the butter and castor sugar until light and fluffy.
Mix the flour and cocoa with the butter mixture.
Mix in cornflake and walnuts.
Mixture should resemble a soft dough.
Drop teaspoonfuls of dough onto baking tins lined with greaseproof or parchment paper.
Bake for about 12 -15 minutes.
Cool slightly in the tins before removing.
Allow to cool completely before drizzling with melted chocolate.
Top the chocolate with half a walnut, optional.
Makes about 30 biscuits.
