Ingredients :


185 g butter, softened

1 cup caster sugar


1 egg


2 cups plain flour


½ tsp baking powder


1 cup icing sugar


1 tsp peppermint flavouring

2 Tbs water


200g dark chocolate (70 per cent cocoa)


1 cup cream




METHOD:



Preheat the oven to 180C. Place the butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until light and creamy, add the egg and beat well. Sift the flour and baking powder over the egg mixture and fold through.


Gently knead the dough to bring together.


Roll the dough between two sheets of baking paper to 2mm thick.



Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Cut out 36 x 7 x 5cm rectangles. Place on baking trays lined with baking paper---> I cut them out with the heart cookie cutter



and bake for 5-6 minutes or until golden. Allow to cool on trays. -->I baked them with 150C for +/- 30 mins


Combine icing sugar, peppermint flavouring and water, and mix until smooth. Set aside. Combine the chocolate and cream in a saucepan over low heat and stir until chocolate is melted and smooth. Set aside.



Sandwich three biscuits biscuits together with peppermint icing.



Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Lightly grease a wire rack and place over a baking tray. Place the layered biscuits on a fork, dip each one into the chocolate mixture, place on the rack and refrigerate for 2 hours or until set..




hemm... it's so nice... I don't know about Tim-Tam Biscuits but my ones are yummy... FOR SURE !!! ...^_^... Doesn't matter the chocolate cover are cracking... don't care about the look.. the important thing is the TASTE... SO GOOD... SO REFRESHING!!



Try it by yourself ...and tell me what do u think ...^_^... for me it is too sweet ...^_^...


Happy Reading!

Enjoy and be blessed...

wiiiiiih cantik dicetak begindang ya. aku cuma pake 50g caster sugar dan dark chocolatenya 72%. enak menurutku cuma fillingnya kayaknya musti diakali supaya ga terlalu manis. kalo pake buttercream enak ga ya? *loh kok nanya sendiri*
