Homemade Bourbon Biscuits

Print version of Homemade Bourbon Biscuits
Bourbon Biscuits

Bourbon Biscuits – Biscuit lover’s delight! The home made version turned out almost identical to store bought Bourbon Biscuits, well, ‘almost’. :) Though they appear a bit rustic and cracked they have a great texture with soft chocolate butter filling. Nehal loved them and so did the rest who devoured them. I more or less followed Nina’s Bourbon biscuits recipe. Thank you, Nina, for sharing the recipe of home made Bourbon Biscuits.

Homemade Bourbon Biscuits Recipe

Preparation: 15 mts, Baking: 15 mts

Makes approx 22 biscuits

.

Ingredients:

1 cup all purpose flour (maida)

1/4 cup unsalted butter

1/3 cup sugar

1/4 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking pwd

1 tbsp cocoa pwd

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

1 tsp golden syrup OR honey

2-3 tbsps cold milk

sugar for sprinkling

For filling:

1/4 cup butter

1/3 cup icing sugar

1 tsp cocoa pwd

few drops vanilla essence

1 Sieve together flour, baking soda, baking pwd and cocoa. Keep aside.
2 In a bowl, cream together butter and white sugar until well blended. Add vanilla essence and golden syrup and combine.
3 Mix in the sieved ingredients with butter mixture and combine to form a soft dough. Add little milk to form the dough.
4 Place butter or plastic wrapping sheet on the work surface, sprinkle some flour and roll the dough into a large roti. Use a knife to cut into rectangle shape pieces. Use a toothpick to prick over the rolled out rectangle. Sprinkle white sugar on top of each rectangle.
5 Grease a baking tray and place each rectangle shaped dough on the tray and bake in a pre-heated oven at 155 degrees C for 14-15 mts or till the edges are toasted. Once baked, the cookie will feel soft on touch but once cool it will harden. Cool for 3 mts before proceeding with the filling.
6 Repeat the process with remaining dough.
7 Mix all the ingredients called for ‘filling’ and using a spatula spread some filling over the underside of each biscuit and sandwich using another biscuit.

    Thanks for the recipe Sailu. Looks amazing and am sure it does taste delicious too. Sailu, if possible please post some sugar free dessert recipes for diabetics. All these sweet treats you are posting looks very delicious but would be very helpful if they can be enjoyed by diabetics also. Please consider this only if you have favourable conditions over there. Thank you.

  • Yamuna

    Hello Sailu garu ..
    can i replace butter with oil ?
    if yes approximately how much oil i have to use for 1/4 cup of butter.
    i used oil in some of your cake recipes .. they came out well .
    Thanks in advance
    Yamuna

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Oil will not work for this recipe. You have to use butter.

    Hi Sailu, I baked these today (second time almost after an year’s gap). They turned up nice and crunchy but slightly less darker in shade probably because of the cocoa powder. I had one question – the biscuits were nice and crisp, but after sandwiching the filling they became soft. Did yours stay crisp all through. I am just beginning to wonder at the process the biscuit Cos use to dehydrate the filling for all cream biscuits available in the market.
    And Happy Ugadi ! waiting for your Ugadi special blog.

  • Joyful

    Hi… I loved your recipe… In any case can we replace all purpose flour with wheat flour ?
    If so can you share us the measurement for that

    • http://sailusfood.com/ Sailu | Indian Food

      Use 1:1 ratio (all purpose flour and wheat flour)
