Hazelnut and Chocolate Chip Biscuits

Is it a biscuit, or is it a cookie? Well, I think cookies are round so to me, these are definitely biscuits even though they have that extravagant American thing going on with double chocolate and hazelnuts. They taste great whatever you choose to call them, and are super easy to do - I made this batch from start to finish whilst on the phone to my parents, hand set squeezed between my ear and shoulder. 

115 gms Plain Flour
135 gms Sugar
100 gms Butter
1 Egg
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
100 gms Hazelnuts
50 gms Dark Chocolate

It is a good idea to leave the butter out for a bit before starting this to let it soften. Mix the sugar and butter until pale and fluffy. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients making sure there are no lumps. Add the egg to the butter mixture, then fold the flour into the batter. Chop the hazelnuts and chocolate and add these too. Spread the batter out on a greased baking sheet, smoothing it out until you have a 25 x 25 cm square,  and cook for 15 minutes at 200 degrees. Whilst still warm, cut into 5 x 5 cm biscuits.
