- 100g unsalted butter, softened
- 40g icing sugar
- 2 egg yolks
- 1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 125g plain all purpose flour
Chocolate icing tip
- 100g dark chocolate chopped
- 30g unsalted butter
Matcha icing tip
- 20g Matchaeco Matcha green tea powder
- 10g flour
- 10g icing sugar
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Cream the butter and sugar: In a small mixing bowl, beat the softened butter and icing sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
- Add wet ingredients: Gradually add the egg yolks and vanilla extract, beating well after each addition.
- Mix in dry ingredients: Transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Sift in the flour and gently fold it in with a flat blade knife until just combined. Don't overmix!
- Pipe the biscuits: Fit a piping bag with a 1cm fluted nozzle and fill it with the biscuit dough. Pipe wavy lines of dough about 6cm long onto the prepared baking sheets.
- Bake the biscuits: Bake for 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Let them cool slightly on the trays before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Melt the chocolate: Break the chocolate into pieces and place it in a small heatproof bowl with the extra tablespoon of butter. Set the bowl over a pan of simmering water (don't let the bowl touch the water). Stir occasionally until the chocolate and butter melt and the mixture is smooth.
- Make the matcha dip: Combine the matchaeco matcha, flour and icing sugar in to a small dish, add 2 tablespoons of water and mix until a thick paste forms (add flour to thicken or water to thin, make sure it is thick enough to stick to the bisucits!)
- Dip and set: Take a cooled biscuit and dip half of it into the melted chocolate or matcha dip. Let the excess chocolate drip off and place the biscuit on a sheet of baking paper or foil to set. Repeat with the remaining biscuits.
Enjoy your delicious homemade chocolate-dipped biscuit!
- For a smoother dipping experience, thin the melted chocolate with a teaspoon of vegetable oil.
- Want to get fancy? Decorate your dipped biscuits with sprinkles, crushed nuts, or a drizzle of melted white chocolate.
- Store the biscuits in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
These biscuits make for a great snack, and why not double dip! One half chocolate and one half as a matcha dip, this creates a great balance of the chocolatey flavour and the matcha flavour in one delicious biscuit!
