Whisky Noons

I work in an office where we are pretty much glued to our computers so biscuits are an important part of the day! Back in December I invented a cookie that was a marriage of cocoa, white and dark choc chips and amaretto for my colleague Jen's birthday. Last week another workmate and fellow blogger had a birthday which inspired the invention of Whisky Noons, a delicate shortbread type biscuit.

Whisky Noons


½ cup of vegan sunflower margarine (I used Vitalite)

½ cup of icing sugar

1 and 1/2 cups of plain flour

1/8 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda

1/8 teaspoon of salt

zest of 1 unwaxed lemon

2 tablespoons of whisky

½ cup of ground almonds

½ cup of choclate chips

Grease and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Pre-heat the oven to 350F/ 180C/ Gas 4

Using an electric whisk beat the margarine until creamy. Add the icing sugar and whisky and beat again.

In a separate bowl sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and almonds and mix together.

Fold the flour mix into the margarine mixture in 2 batches. Fold in the lemon zest and chocolate chips.

Roll a dessertspoonful of the mixture into a ball. Place on the baking tray and flatten with a fork.

Bake for 12-14 mins until starting to turn golden. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.
