Bourbon Biscuits

Burbon Biscuits

Who doesn't like these chocolaty biscuits....?Im a very big fan of these Burbon ,Hide n Seek ,Milano all these chocolaty biscuits.Though wanted to try all these
biscuits......,actually didn't give a try till  my friend Sushma wanted to try these chocolaty biscuits for her lil prince Vihaan.As she requested me to post this burbon biscuits with wheat flour .....,i never delayed to prepare it in my kitchen.....,but as always got late to post because of my son......,who always comes crawling to hit the keypad of my laptop :),as he was sleeping......, quickly thought of posting this ......! I have tried these burbon biscuits with wheat flour which tasted almost  90 % similar to the store brought but if you want it 100 % then try with All purpose flour ( please refer the notes).

Ingredients:
Category:Veg | Cuisine: Indian|Course:Snack
Prep Time:10 Minutes|Cooking Time:15 Minutes|Makes:22

Wheat Flour: 1 Cup
Baking Powder:1 Tsp
Baking Soda:1/4 Tsp
Salt:1/4 Tsp
Cocoa Powder:1 Tbsp

Unsalted Butter: 1/3 Cup + ( 1 Tbsp,if needed)
Sugar:1/3 Cup
Honey:1 Tsp
Vanilla Essence:1/2 Tsp
Cold Milk:1 1 /2 Tbsp
Sugar for sprinkling

For Filling:

Butter:1/4 Cup
Sugar:1/3 Cup
Cocoa Powder: 1 Tsp
Vanilla Essence: 1 -2 Drops


Method:
Sieve wheat flour,baking powder,soda salt and cocoa powder thrice and keep aside.
 
Powder the sugar and keep it aside.Take softened butter  1/3 Cup and add powdered sugar and cream it. 

For this add honey,vanilla essence and mix well.Add sieved floured the mixture.


Mix well,it looks like bread crumbs,add cold milk 1 tbsp  and check whether it holds together,if not add 1/2 tbsp and mix well,now dough should be able to hold together. If it still doesn't hold add 1/2 to 1 Tbsp of butter for kneading,don't add more milk if you are using wheat flour as it makes the biscuits more hard .







Place a parchment paper and roll the dough over it using a rolling pin.Cut into 1 1/2 " - 2 1/2 " inch biscuits,sprinkle some sugar ( i forgot to do it,and later added while baking ).Prick it using a fork/tooth pick.Place it on the greased tray.


Preheat the oven to 160 deg C and bake it to 14-15 minutes.It will be slightly soft if you touch the biscuits ( you can slightly see the impression once you touch),it will harden once it gets cooled.Cool it on a wire rack.
 

While its getting baked prepare the filling by mixing butter,powdered sugar,vanilla essence and cocoa powder and once the biscuits are cooled ,take a Tbsp of choco filling and spread over the biscuits,i.e,sandwich between two biscuits.


You can Store it in air tight containers for a week or more.


Notes:
1. If you add all purpose flour then add 1/4 cup of butter,wheat flour needs more fat so i have added 1/3 cup of  butter.
2. I used homemade butter,water content will be high in homemade butter,you may need an extra Tbsp of milk for dough to hold,it even depends on the quality of the wheat flour you use.I have used Ashirwaad Select range aata.
