Choco buttons

This recipe for choco buttons isn't from the Edmonds Cookery Book but is similar in style. I remember my mother baking these when we were kids and we would dig into the bag of chocolate buttons while she was putting the rest of the mixture together. They are really easy to bake at the same time as cooking dinner, which is lucky as they nearly were our dinner tonight!

Choco buttons

  • 150 g butter
  • 5 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 ¼ cups flour
  • 6 tbsp cornflour
  • white and dark chocolate melts
  1. Pre-heat oven to 160°C.
  2. Melt butter in a large saucepan over a moderate heat. Remove from heat and stir in sugar and vanilla.
  3. Sift over flour and cornflour and stir to combine.
  4. Roll tablespoonfuls into balls and place on a greased tray.
  5. Make an indentation with a thumb in the centre of each biscuit and place in a white or dark chocolate button.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes. Makes 16-18.
