For the dough:
- 340 g plain white flour
- 225 g butter (unsalted)
- 130 g light muscovado sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 medium free-range egg yolk
For the flavours:
- 15 g funfetti
- 15 g chocolate strands or vermicelli
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
For the dips:
- 100 g dark chocolate
- 100 g white chocolate
- 100 g caramel sauce
You will need:
- vegetable crinkle cutter
- rolling pin
First make the dough. Combine the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the flour, vanilla, salt and free-range egg yolk and mix to make a soft dough.
Divide the dough into three equal portions (about 240g (9oz) each).
Into each portion add a flavour; we used funfetti, chocolate strands and cinnamon.
Preheat the oven to 180ºC/Gas Mark 4 and line three baking trays with baking parchment.
One flavour at a time, roll out the dough to 3mm (1/8in) thick. Using a crinkle cutter, cut out shapes that look like crinkle cut chips, about 10cm (4in) long by 1cm (½in) wide.
Place the biscuits onto the prepared trays and glaze with beaten egg.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, but check after 12.
Allow the biscuits to cool completely on a rack before serving with the dips.
