Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 1/4 cups self-raising flour
  • 3 Weet-Bix™, finely crushed
  • 18 milk or dark chocolate buttons

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Line two flat trays with baking paper.
  2. Beat margarine and sugar with a wooden spoon until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat again.
  3. Add flour and stir well, then fold through the crushed Weet-Bix™.
  4. Place rounded tablespoons of the dough onto the prepared trays, leaving room for spreading. Lightly press a wet finger into the centre of each biscuit, then place a chocolate button in the indentation.
  5. Bake for 8 minutes until golden. Cool on tray for a minute before transferring to a rack to cool completely.

Tips:

  • You can replace the dark chocolate buttons with milk or white chocolate, or fill the indentations with a spoonful of jam before baking.
