Barmouth Biscuits Recipe
9 tablespoons butter, softened
10 tablespoons white sugar
3 egg whites
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
6 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate, melted
Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F / Gas 6.
Lightly grease paper sheets.
In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg whites one at a time until batter is light and fluffy. Stir in the vanilla.
Mix in the flour just until blended. Dough will be a little stiff.
Force through a pastry bag or cookie press with a medium star tip onto lightly buttered cookie sheets. Make each cookie about 3 inches long.
Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until straw-coloured. When cool, dip one end of each cookie in melted chocolate and place on wax paper until chocolate hardens.
Store in a cool place.
