"This traditional New Zealand / Australian biscuit has what may be considered a rather strange name in the current political situation, but the recipe produces a wonderfully crunchy, yet delicate biscuit".

Ingredients

200 gm butter
225 gm flour
25 gm cocoa powder
75 gm castor sugar
50 gm cornflakes
sq chocolate icing
sq walnut halves

Method

  • Soften the butter with a wooden spoon
  • Add the sugar and beat to a creamy texture
  • Add the flour, cocoa and cornflakes and combine thoroughly
  • Put spoonfuls of the mixture on a greased tray and flatten slightly
  • Bake for approximately 15 minutes at 180°C
  • Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack
  • When cold, ice with the chocolate icing and place a walnut half on top or dip completely in melted chocolate

Chef's Note:

If wanting small biscuits it is best to break up the cornflakes. If left whole, they will leave air pockets and cause the biscuits to break easily.

Enjoy and bon appetit . . . . .
