Chocolate and raisin biscuits

I woke up way too early this morning. No one to talk to and it's too cold to take a walk outside yet. Making biscuits is something easy, relaxing and it spreads the most amazing aroma through the house. So that's a very good way to pass time.

These biscuits are really aromatic because of the light brown sugar. I took the recipe from a book I bought in Oxford, while on excursion in high school about 6 years ago. It's actually a recipe for chocolate chip cookies, but I altered it a bit. As you know, copy-pasting is not exactly proper in copyright terms ;)

- 110 grams butter
- 100 grams light brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 140 grams flour
- dash of salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- handful raisins
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons Nestlé powder
- 50 grams dark chocolate, molten 

How to:
Preheat the oven up to 190°C.
Mix the butter and the sugar until they are creamy. Add the whisked egg. Then add the baking powder, flour, salt, vanilla essence. Now, split the dough in two. In the first half you add the raisins. In the second half you add the molten chocolate, cocoa and the NestlĂ© powder. 
With a little spoon, drop heaps of dough on the baking tray (on non-stick paper). Leave enough space in between because they tend to get larger while baking.
Bake for about 10-15 minutes according to your oven. They are ready when still soft in the middle but light golden on the sides.

Don't they look good?
