Bourbon Biscuits | Homemade Bourbon Biscuits recipe with step by step instructions and pictures. Bourbon biscuits are chocolate cream biscuits where chocolate cream is sandwiched between biscuits. It is favorite to everyone. In our home my hubby as well as my daughter likes it a lot. So I thought of trying in home. As with any recipe I was browsing and came across this recipe. It was huge hit in first attempt itself. It was so good exactly matching store bought biscuits. Next time I tried with half wheat and half maida and then with whole wheat flour making few changes. It comes out so good every time and nowadays no more bourbon biscuits from store.
This is not very much time consuming process. Process of making these biscuits involves two steps. First making the biscuits and then chocolate cream. While the biscuits are baking we can prepare the cream so it saves time. Please do try and let me know your feedback.

How to make Bourbon Biscuits in home with step by step pictures
Sieve wheat flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, salt and keep it aside. Take butter in a bowl and beat it nicely for few secs.
Add the powdered sugar in batches and beat till it combines and mixture is soft and creamy.
Add the sieved dry ingredients in batches and combine nicely.
Use your hands and mix nicely. It will be like crumbed mixture. Add 1 tsp vanilla essence and mix.
Now add 1 tbsp of milk at a time and form smooth dough. Add milk only when required.
Line the baking tray with parchment paper and keep it ready. Roll the dough between butter sheet into rectangle with 1/8 inch thickness and trim the edges.
Cut them to small rectangle shape using knife and place them on baking tray.
If you are finding difficult to roll you can refrigerate the dough for sometime. I always roll without refrigeration. Using skewers make holes in the biscuit similar to what we get from store. Sprinkle little sugar.
Preheat the oven to 160°C for ten minutes. Bake the biscuits in the same temperature for 10-12 minutes. Remove them from tray and cool them
Preparing Chocolate Cream
Cream the butter for few secs. Now add sugar in batches and beat nicely till soft peaks form. Add the cocoa powder and beat nicely. If the mixture is too dry add few drops of milk to adjust consistency. This cream should be stiff than normal buttercream we use for Icing.
Take each biscuit and apply the chocolate cream and sandwich with other biscuit.
Repeat the same for other biscuits
