    • 100g icing sugar

    • Ganache
    • 90g Cooks’ Ingredients cooking chocolate (milk, dark or white)
    • 3 tbsp essential Waitrose double, single or whipping cream
    • 1 tbsp icing sugar


    1. Preheat the oven to 200C, gas mark 6. Line a baking sheet with non-stick paper.
    2. Beat the sugar, butter and vanilla together until fluffy. Beat in the egg whites one at a time. Fold in the flour
    3. Transfer the mixture into a freezer bag and snip the corner to make a 1cm hole, or use a piping bag with a 1cm nozzle
    4. Pipe the mixture on to the sheet, in 32 x 5cm fingers. Bake for 6–8 minutes, until the edges are brown. Leave to cool
    5. For the ganache, break the chocolate into pieces and put it in a heat-proof bowl with the cream. Set the bowl over a pan of very hot water. When the chocolate is half-melted, take the bowl off the pan. Stir the chocolate until melted, then beat the ganache as it cools.
    6. Spread 1 tsp ganache on a biscuit. Place another biscuit on top, pressing down gently. Repeat with the rest of the biscuits. Leave in the fridge for an hour to firm up, then dust lightly with the icing sugar before serving.
