Today we did a bit of baking to tide us through the school holidays (well to be honest these will only get us through the first couple of days).

This recipe makes a lot of biscuits and what I do with any extra dough is to roll it into logs, wrap in baking paper, label and freeze.  When you have unexpected visitors (or you get the munchies) you can take the dough log out of the freezer, slice into biscuits, put them on the baking paper they were wrapped in and bake in the oven.

Today we made Choc-chip, cornflake and sultana, jam drop, and milo biscuits.


500gm butter or margarine
1 tin condensed milk
1 cup sugar
5 cups SR flour

Cream butter and sugar, add condensed milk and flour.  Roll into teaspoonful sized balls and press down with a fork.  Put on greased or baking paper covered trays and bake in moderate oven (180°C) until golden brown.  Let cool on tray before transferring to wire rack.




  1. Hi Ann,

    Interesting recipe using condensed milk and making milo biscuits, that is a new one. I will be giving this recipe a go.

    1. Hi Shazza, this is one of the easiest recipes I have come across. Biscuit ideas are only limited by your imagination and ingredients. Enjoy.
