A simple Biscuit...

We always have biscuits in the jar, generally homemade unless they are the ginger/spice/christmas biscuits.
I don't have a favourite recipe but my motto is the less complicated the better. I heard a chap on the radio talk about this recipe and it is so simple that I remembered it without having to write it down - my kind of recipe!!
The recipe only has three ingredients : 1 egg, lightly beaten
                                                              1 cup hazelnut spread 
                                                                 1 cup of SR Flour, sifted

3 ingredients
Add spread to the beaten egg and mix until combined. Then add the sifted flour and mix together with a fork.
Set oven to approximately 175 C
Roll mix into balls that are about walnut size. Put on a tray lined with baking paper and squish with a fork.
oven ready
( the bickies spread a lot so don't cram them on the tray too much)
I think the cooking time is about 15 minutes. They are usually ready when they look ripply and you'll be able to tell from the smell of hazelnut chocolate in the kitchen.
Remove from oven, let sit on the tray for 5 minutes and then put onto a rack to finish cooling.

WARNING: these bickies are very easy to eat so it is advisable to share with friends so that you don't eat them all yourself
