How to make fork biscuits

To make simple fork biscuits you just need butter, sugar and self raising flour although you can add a little vanilla for extra flavour if you want to. To make this chocolate version we just replace a little of the flour with cocoa powder, giving a delicious chocolate finish.

You can also use plain flour if you like for these easy chocolate biscuits recipes with just a little baking powder or baking soda added to give the cookies a nice rise.
