When my son wa at primary school I always used to bake two batches of these to take to school on his birthday so he could hand them around the class. It resulted in kids loving them so much, the parents requested the recipe.
Heat oven to 190oC
In a bowl beat together the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy Then add the beaten egg just a little at a time beating well after each addition.
Add the almond esssence and beat well. Combine the baking powder and flour and sift into the mixture and then mix well.
Now add the chocolate drops and stir well.
Using a desert spoon, carefully place about 16 small piles of the mixture onto three greased baking sheets. The cookies will expand with cooking so spread them out well. about 2 inches apart.
Bake for about 20 mins and then place on a cooling tray.
The mixture should be quite stiff. Check after 15 minutes and turn trays to ensure even cooking.
Kids go absolutely crazy for these coookies!
