Now that the kids of gone back to school I think they deserve a little treat. It can be very daunting heading back to the world of education so these sweetie topped biccies are the sweet treat that is going to put a smile on any kids face. Also, I think some parents might think they deserve a little treat having putting up with their little cherubs for five weeks (admit it, you gave out a sign of relief didn't you!). This simple biscuit recipe will give you 12 yummy biccies that you can top with whatever choccies you wish!

"Back To School" Biccies

225g Unsalted Softened Butter
100g Light Brown Sugar
175g Golden Caster Sugar
2 Beaten Eggs
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
300g Self Raising Flour
1 Large Packet M+M's

  1. Begin by turning your oven on to 180 degrees (160 fan) and greasing and lining two baking trays with grease proof paper if you don't have any biscuit baking sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together to butter and the sugars until light and fluffy before adding in the eggs a smidge at a time, beating after each addition until combined. Add in the vanilla and beat again until a smooth mixture has formed.
  3. Add in the flour and gently fold through until combined. You shouldn't see any streaks of flour in the mixture! Grab thebaking trays and spoon large heaped tablespoons of the biscuit mixture onto the trays. You should get around 6 biccies on each tray. Make sure they well spaced out as they will spread.
  4. Pop the biscuits into the centre of your oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove the trays from the oven and then carefully push the M+M's into the top of the biscuits. Place them back into the oven to bake for 5 more minutes.
  5. Remove the biscuits from the oven and then leave them to cool on the baking trays until they have firmed up slightly before moving them to a wire cooling rack to cool completely
It can be very tempting to leave the biscuits in the oven a little longer as they do look under baked when you remove them from the oven but trust me, they will firm up as they are cooling on the baking trays. You must also resist the temptation to tuck into the biscuits before they have fully cooled. They are at their most delicious when they have firmed right up so they are nice and crispy on to the outside but deliciously moist and chewy in the middle. The sweeties that have now baked onto the top of the biccies will burst soft and gooey chocolate into your mouth as you reach them. Full marks from teacher for these bad boys!
