butter biscuits with a twist

Don't you just love food processor baking? I like it even better on my lazy days when I still want to bake but with not a lot of effort. You can just throw everything in, mix it up and it's pretty much good to go in the oven after a little forming.
To tell you the truth, when I first saw this I thought it was more like a scone and that's what I was sort of expecting until I saw them come out of the oven.... these were more like cookies and extremely good cookies at that!

recipe

Preheat oven to 190c/375f. In a food processor, blend 110g unsalted butter, 85g caster sugar, a splash of milk, 30g cornflour, 110g self-rising flour and 4 tbsp rolled oats. Shape mixture into 15 small balls and place on a baking tray, leaving enough space to spread. Bake for 12-15 mins, until golden. Cool on a wire rack. Melt 100g white chocolate over a double broiler and dip half of each biscuit, then place on a non-stick baking paper and sprinkle over pink peppercorns. Let cool.

Hope your all having a fabby weekend!

These do look wonderful! I actually recently got some pink peppercorns from Sustainable Sourcing https://secure.sustainablesourcing.com and was pondering how to use them. This recipe sounds so easy I'm going to give it a try!
