    200 g softened butter
    ½ cup soft brown sugar
    1 ¼ cups flour
    ¼ cup cocoa
    2 cups cornflakes

    AFGANS BISCUITS:

    Chocolate Icing
    1 Tbsp softened butter
    1 ½ cups icing sugar, sifted
    2 Tbsp cocoa, sifted
    2 Tbsp boiling water
    15 walnut halves
    Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly grease two baking trays or line with baking paper.
    Cream butter and sugar together until light and creamy. Sift flour and cocoa together, add to the creamed mixture and stir until combined. Stir through the cornflakes.
    Roll dessertspoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place on a baking tray, allowing room for them to spread. Press each ball lightly with a fork.
    Bake for 12-15 minutes or until cooked. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
    Make the chocolate icing by beating the butter, icing sugar and cocoa together. Add enough boiling water so the icing is just spreadable. Spread over cooled biscuits and decorate each with a walnut half.

    Known a relation to make this as a slice. 🙂

    1 ½ cups flour
    1 ½ cups sugar
    250g butter
    4 eggs
    2 tablespoons lemon rind
    ¼ cup lemon juice
    To serve:
    Icing sugar or Greek yoghurt
    Method
    Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
    Beat flour, half of the sugar and butter together until well combined.
    In a separate bowl whisk eggs, lemon juice, lemon rind and the remaining sugar together.
    Then pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and beat on a medium speed until smooth (don’t panic if it looks curdled, it will come together with mixing).
    Pour the mixture into a lined oven 20cm x 30cm tin.
    Bake for 25 minutes or until golden and just firm to touch.
    Allow to cool before removing from tin, serve with a dusting of icing sugar or Greek yogurt and enjoy!

    Good recipe, to use the lemons up. 🙂
