Hide N Seek Biscuits !!! Easiest way out !!!

Chocolate Lovers this is for you !!!
As a kid or grown up or as an adult i just love chocolates..And these Hide N Seek biscuits are also a part of those, loved for..
Might be during journeys or pass time snack or chocolate craving time i loved to eat these biscuits but since the time we moved out of India they have become a yearly treat..
All of a sudden i started to crave for these beauties as i couldnt get them here..made them myself !
And guess what, they turned out just amazing....i just had to pat my shoulder quiet happily ..i am proud of myself than never before !!!

Ingredients :  yield : 24 cookies
  • 1/2 cup or 113 gms unsalted butter at room temperature..
  • 1& 1/2 cups All purpose flour / Maida
  • 3/4 cup or 85 gms Powdered / icing sugar
  • 2 Egg yolks at room temperature
  • 2 tbsp unsweetend Cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips divided into two portions..
  • 1/8 tsp or a big pinch salt..
Method :

  • Sift the flour, cocoa powder, salt , baking powder and set aside..
  • Take butter in a bowl and whisk it until smooth ...(Butter at room temperature helps a lot in whisking easily ..cold butter will be difficult to beat n won't give the exact required texture..)
  • Next beat in the egg yolks...
  • You can use a spatula or whisk or electric beater or a wooden spoon for the whisking / beating..
  • Later add the powdered / icing sugar in intervals n beat until well combined..
  • The mixture will turn out light n fluffy ..
  • Now add the sifted flour mix ,half of chocolate chips and knead into a smooth dough using your hand..
  • The moisture in the butter mix is enough to knead a dough no additional liquid is needed..
  • Once kneaded well...place this in refrigerator for 10 mins ..
  • Becoz of all the kneading the butter will start to melt n results in sticky dough..so placing in the refrigerator tightens the dough n helps while rolling / shaping..
  • 10 mins was enough for my dough but depending on the weather n temperature in your kitchen u might need to cool it a bit more ..
  • So chill the dough until it is non sticky n firm..
  • Now sprinkle a tbsp of flour over the counter top or work table..
  • Place the dough over it and start rolling with a rolling pin into a square or rectangular sheet of  0.5 mm thickness all over ..
  • Now using a square cookie cutter cut into squares...
  • Now run a toothpick and make lines over the biscuits as per u r preference ..i made five lines diagonally ..
  • Now press the remaining chocolate chips over the cookies preferably two or three on each cookie...
  • Now place them on a parchment lined baking sheet leaving an inch gap in between..
  • Now bake this in an preheated oven at 180°c or 356°f for about 10 to 12 mins..
  • Do not over bake as chocolate burns real quick..
  • Once baked to perfection remove them on to a cooling rack  carefully..n allow them to cool at room temperature..
  •  Be gentle while transferring on to cooling rack as they will be slighter softer soon after baking...
  • Don't worry Cookies will get crunchier as they cool..
  • Once cooled completely store in an airtight container n cherish till stock lasts...

My craving is satisfied...hope it will satisfy urs as well..

Make and enjoy these crunchies during tea time...tastes great when dunked in milk too..

We loved it hope you will love it too !!!
