Kingston Biscuits

Thermomix Kingston biscuits | becs-table.com.au

These Kingston Biscuits (another Arnotts favourite) were so much fun to make in the Thermomix.  So quick and easy I don’t think I’ll ever go back to the conventional method for them.  I just took a favourite Anzac biscuit recipe and made a few adjustments here and there.  Swapped some ingredients and sorted the quantities.  Ta-Da Kingston biscuits.

With the chocolate ganache in the middle, I think I like them better than an Anzac biscuit.  Better still, I found I only needed one; they’re very satisfying with your favourite cuppa.

These Kingston biscuits are another we've been playing with at Bake Club. They're so much like a bought one from the Arnotts biscuit range.

      Notes

      If you want your Kingston biscuits all the same size, you need to use something that will make them even. I chose to use a weigh scale, and I made all my cookies around 15 g (1g, either way, is ok).
      NOTE:
      Many of the biscuit recipes on my blog were written and tested before I developed my new Perfect Cookie Method for the Thermomix and Food processors. However, even though the above method may not be what’s in my  “Perfect Cookie Making Course”, we’ve tested this recipe in 3 separate bake club sessions by my students, and it works a treat.  However, If you’ve done my course, I suggest you download the recipe template and follow the instructions.  That method is much quicker and easier.  😉
