Afghan Biscuits

Posted on Leave a comment

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.

Ingredients:

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

Method:

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.
