Delicious Condensed Milk Biscuits With Macadamias

These biscuits are completely outrageous and shouldn’t be allowed.

Call for a ban!

I first saw the recipe here on Caz’s Truth About Mummy blog.

Heaven help me, but there’s something about condensed milk that sends me a bit doolally.

I ran around for a while squeaking and squawking and then made the biscuits.

The kids scoffed them, and thank goodness for that because the ingredients (butter, sugar, condensed milk, white flour) are not ingredients that their old mum’s body really needs.

I’ve been fiddling with the recipe, trying to make it a wee bit more nutritious without losing any of the delicious.

Here are a couple of version for you to try.

Simple Condensed Milk Biscuits With Macadamia

500g butter

200g (1 cup) sugar

1 tin of condensed milk

750g of SR flour  (I tend to use wholemeal SR flour, or half white, half wholemeal)

100g macadamia nuts, halved (we use more sometimes)

Method

1. Set oven to 180C.

2. Beat butter and sugar together until creamed and fluffy.

3. Pour in condensed milk and stir together

4. Pour in flour in several batches and mix well.

5. Stir in macadamia.

6. Form into balls, place on greased sheets and press down a bit.

7. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes depending on size.  Leave to cool on a rack, if you can.

(See Caz’s post for more variations on decorations for these biscuits.)

We have also added craisins and milk chocolate bits to some batches.

When I made macadamia nut butter recently, I tried a batch of biscuits using it in place of dairy butter. It worked a treat, I used half the quantity of the original recipe here.

 Who fancies a cup of tea and a macadamia biscuit?

And if we use the recipe that just needs half a can of condensed milk would you like to share the leftover half tin with me? 

Slurp and yum, and who fancies a brisk walk?

Take it easy

PS I made the macadamia nut butter using nuts I’d been kindly sent by Australian Macadamias. Thank you!  I’ve been trying to find equally fresh ones ever since, but mainly buy them from supermarkets.

    You know I always put condensed milk into my cookies, a trick a lovely elderly neighbour taught mum when we were growing – they always taste MUCH nicer! Those biscuits would last 24 hours in this house 🙂
