  • a ½ in star nozzle and then spoon the chocolate mixture down the other side.
  • Pipe the mixture into 12 paper cases in a bun tray to make pretty striped swirls.

    I followed the recipe to the letter but I had a few problems with it. The mixture wouldn't smooth out when I added the flour, so I had to put in a few tablespoons of milk. It's a very tough dough and was very hard to get through the piping tip. I microwaved the bag twice to soften the dough enough to get it in the cups. They held their shape beautifully in the oven. The taste is very floury and not sweet at all, so if you don't like sweet biscuits, then you might enjoy these

    How cute - and I love the corn flour twist...never tried a cookie with that ingredient, but I will now - these are too good looking to not try. You are so inventive with your presentations, Ahmed...ALWAYS fun to view your recipe posts! Have a good day - Krum
