Summer's first prize choc chip biscuits

Millicent had it's annual show on the weekend. I didn't enter anything this year. It came up so fast and with the gymnastics annual concert the week before I was a busy little bee and could not fathom how I'd have the time or energy.

The kids still wanted to enter stuff, and as usual they did pretty well. Isabel entered a couple of things in junk art, got a two firsts and her decorated terracotta pot won a sash for best exhibit in that category. Super proud.  The circle wire hanging sculpture thingy behind her was something she knocked up during the week, and the pot she'd decorated at mums earlier in the year.

She entered flowers which she got a few wins for, and also won most points in produce, including her bouquet of weeds. Along with flowers and vegies, we apparently grow prize winning weeds in our garden also.

Summer entered two things. She wanted to enter choc chip biscuits and a drawing. Well I nagged her for a few days to do a drawing she could enter, and the morning before show entry drop off we found a how to draw website (which I have linked below) and she drew a dabbing panda. She won second prize.

Not the best photo to show her bickies, but she won first prize. These are pretty great biscuits, super delicious too! Summer and I both agree it's the brown sugar that make them so good. Here's the recipe for first prize choc chip biscuits!

150g butter
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 egg
1 3/4 cup plain flour
1 cup dark choc chips

Preheat oven to 180C(or 160C fan forced). Line two baking trays with baking paper.
Beat butter, sugars and vanilla with electric beaters until smooth. Beat in egg until combined.
Stir in flour in two batches then stir in choc chips.
Roll about two teaspoons of mixture into balls, placing them about 3cm apart on the baking tray. Flatten slightly, and bake for 15 minutes until golden around the edges. Transfer to wire rack to cool.


  1. Yummo to the biccies and well-done all round to the girls!!

    1. The show awards they get are so good for their self esteem. Such a great thing to be involved in :)

  3. Your girls did so well! The biscuits sound delicious!

    1. These biscuits are evil for my waistline! We were all excited Saturday morning to go and see how they did. It's awesome when they do well, but it's good for them to be happy for the winners too, and realise it's ok to not be a winner.

  4. well done to the girls! biscuits sound yum, it's definitely the brown sugar that does it!

  5. Congratulations to them both on their winning! The dabbing panda just cracked me up and I may have to show this website to my dabbing-obsessed boys!
