Bourbon Biscuits are my all time favorite biscuit , even now i grab a pack of Bourbon biscuit whenever I visit Indian stores, they are finger licking good. This is a simple recipe with basic ingredients, Chocolate butter cream at the center adds more richness and creaminess to the recipe.  This recipe can be made in few minutes and is a easy hunger fix recipe. Lets get started.

Serving Size           : 5 (15 Biscuit)

Preparation Time  : 10 minutes

Baking Time           : 15 minutes (Oven)
                                   20 minutes (Cooker) 

Quantity Ingredients for Bourbon Biscuit Recipe
6 tbspButter (Room temperature) (75 gram)
1/2 cupPowdered sugar (100 gram) (1/2 cup before powdering)
1 cupAll purpose flour / Maida (125 gram) 
1/4 cupCocoa powder (25 gram) 
3 tbspMilk (45 ml)

Pinch of salt

For Chocolate Butter Cream 
3 tbsp Butter  (Room temperature)
1/2 cupPowdered sugar  (100 gram) 
1-2 tbspCocoa powder

Cooking Method

Step 1) Into a mixing bowl add softened butter ( make sure the butter is at room temperature - nice and soft) and whisk well until pale and fluffy. Then add powdered sugar to it and mix it again until well combined. (You can also use electric beater to seep up the process) . Then add in the cocoa powder, Maida, salt, Milk and mix well without any lumps ( use your hands for mixing) 

Step 2) Now transfer the dough to a working surface and roll it thin , I have used plastic paper below and parchment paper above the dough to roll evenly. Use a knife to cut them into squares, then cut them into biscuit shapes (2.5 cm * 6 cm) . With a help of a fork or needle make small impressions as in Bourbon biscuit. Finally sprinkle some granulated sugar on top. We get 30 pieces from this recipe.

Step 3) Transfer them to a baking pan lined with parchment paper (make sure to leave some space in between the cookies) and bake it for 13-15 minutes @ 350 F / 175 C or until crispy.
It may seam a little soft at first but once it cools down it thickens, Allow it to cool completely. 
A well baked cookie should have nice crisp to it. 
It takes approximately 20 minutes when baked in Cooker at medium heat.

Step 4) For Butter Cream :
Into a mixing bowl add softened butter and beat well. then add in the cocoa powder and combine with it. Now slowly add in the powdered sugar and mix it well. The mixture should be thick as shown below.

Step 5) Once the biscuits are cooled spread butter cream with a help of a spoon and place another bourbon biscuit on the top. That's it our Bourbon biscuits are ready to be enjoyed.

Once the cookies are cooled, store them in a air tight container / Cookie jar. Happy Bourbon Biscuit, enjoy  Cookies !!!

  1. Hi Steffi,
    I am not much into cooking but your posts are too good and made me try your recipes and am loving it. Your works are awesome and my best wishes. A request from my side- Could you add some menu ideas for 'cooking for guests'?

    1. Thank you Sindhu, Will definitely try to include such recipes.

  2. Hi Steffi.. I am a huge fan of your channel.. all your recipes are so simple, easy to make and delicious.. a massive thank you for all your efforts. i have a question. I saw your video about using cast iron pans and steel cooking vessels and was motivated by it. so i bought myself a cast iron crepe pan to make dosai.
    I saw a few videos in Youtube about conditioning the pan before using. so i did the whole thing of oiling the pan and heating it in the oven and repeating this a few times so that oil is coated on the pan and food doesnt stick on it anymore.i did all of this but dosai is still sticking on the pan. I know you use one.. so is this how you conditioned it when you got a new pan? how did you do it? any suggestion or help will be greatly appreciated.
    thanks heaps!
    Regards, Nithya
