Time to reveal another of my secret ‘Never Fail’ recipes. Well, if I’m totally honest I actually found this on the net myself a few years back – but it’s far to good not to pass on to you. Condense Milk Biscuits. Easy and very very yummy. I only wish I could remember where I found it so I can give credit. If it was you – “thank-you”.
1 500g tub of margarine or butter
1 cup of sugar
1 tin of condensed milk
5 cups of SR flour
Cream margarine and sugar together
Add tin of condensed milk and mix well
Add flour a cup at a time and mix well
Roll into balls and cook in for 12 minutes at 180c.
That’s it. When I first discovered this recipe I didn’t even have a mixer so mixed it all by hand – and it worked fabulously. It makes a large batch – perfect for school holidays. Alternatively the mixture freezes well. Just roll it up into a sausage shape and wrap in cling wrap. Then it’s ready for the next time you want to bake biscuits. Great for when kids come over and you need an instant snack. (Best not to add anything to the basic mixture for freezing.)
The great thing about this little gem of a recipe is the unlimited ways you can dress it up. A big favourite with the little pink people at my house is 100s of 1000s. I’m sure I’m not alone in having kids who love those!
For a slightly more adult version mix in sultana’s and press the balls into cornflakes before putting them on the tray. Chopped up glazed cherries and chocolate chips is also adorable. Really the options are endless. A friend was visiting when we cooked this batch and she is going to try them with muesli. Just be warned these little biscuits are very yummy and if you make up the entire batch at once you’ll have rather a few to deal with. I tend to make them as larger cookies – but you could easily make the smaller and have even more!
