Step by step recipe

1 "BN style" chocolate-filled biscuits : Photo of step #1In a food processor bowl, mix: 100 g caster sugar, 100 g butter, 2 eggs, 250 g flour and a pinch of salt.

Knead on slow speed until the dough is smooth (around 3 or 4 minutes).
5 min.
2 "BN style" chocolate-filled biscuits : Photo of step #2Shape the dough into a flat cake and wrap in plastic film. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. 2 hours
3 "BN style" chocolate-filled biscuits : Photo of step #3After this resting time, roll out the dough and prick all over with a fork or pastry pricker (pique-vite). 7 min.
4 "BN style" chocolate-filled biscuits : Photo of step #4
Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F).

Cut out circles with a cutter for round biscuits. For rectangular ones, cut strips, then cut these across into rectangles.
5 min.
5 "BN style" chocolate-filled biscuits : Photo of step #5Transfer the biscuits to a baking sheet. A metal spatula or slice is handy for this. 5 min.
6 "BN style" chocolate-filled biscuits : Photo of step #6Cook until the biscuits are a light golden brown. 20 min.
7 "BN style" chocolate-filled biscuits : Photo of step #7Prepare a chocolate ganache with 100 g chocolate and 100 ml cream, let cool until it is quite thick and "pasty" (rather like Nutella chocolate spread).

You can speed this up by standing the base of the pan in cold water and stirring from time to time.
20 min.
8 "BN style" chocolate-filled biscuits : Photo of step #8Transfer the ganache into a forcing bag .

Pipe a generous strip of chocolate along the rectangular biscuits.
5 min.
9 "BN style" chocolate-filled biscuits : Photo of step #9Then cover with a second biscuit and press lightly so that it is level and sticks.

Ideally the chocolate should show on each side without spilling out. Scrape off any excess with a knife.

10 "BN style" chocolate-filled biscuits : Photo of step #10For round biscuits, pipe a circle.
11 "BN style" chocolate-filled biscuits : Photo of step #11And as before, place a second biscuit on top and press down lightly.
12 "BN style" chocolate-filled biscuits : Photo of step #12Assemble all the biscuits like this then refrigerate for a few hours to set the ganache completely.

Your "BN style" biscuits are ready.
2 hours

Remarks

You can add extra filling if you prefer: 2 strips for the rectangular biscuits or 2 circles for the round ones.

The biscuits used here are rather dry by choice, but use your imagination and try this with richer biscuits (shortbread style) or with a stronger flavour (almonds, oats, etc.).
