THE ORIGINAL RECIPE:  120 Biscuits for Less than $7

Looking for a delicious but frugal bulk biscuit recipe? Well look what we got here – 120 Biscuits for Less than $7. Awesome, right?

This fantastic basic recipe is of terrific value, makes loads and has lots of room for variations:  BUT the best thing of all – make the different flavours and then FREEZE the dough so you always have fresh biscuits 10 minutes away.

These are particularly good to make if you love fresh biscuits but hate making the dough from scratch every time.

 

Great Ideas for the 120 Biscuits for Less than $7:

  • Make these for your School Fete or Fair – this recipe is the one to make in bulk and sell – your customers will be screaming for more!

  • Perfect for cooking large bulk biscuits and freezing the dough so you always have freshly made biscuits on hand.

  • Having a birthday party or a sleep-over?  Making these biscuits are a great idea for a low-cost activity.

Hints and Tips:

  • If you want to make the biscuits even more delicious, substitute one or two cups of the self raising flour or a cup of custard powder. It gives the biscuits a lovely custard flavour.

  • If you are worried about how much butter is in the 120 Biscuits Recipe, you can substitute half the butter and add an egg.

Ingredients

  • 500 grams Butter softened to room temperature
  • 395 grams Condensed Milk Sweetened
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 5 cups Self Raising Flour


Method

  1. Preheat oven 180 degrees.
  2. Cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the condensed milk and sifted self raising flour, mix to form a dough. (If you are using an electric beater or Mixmaster, fold the flour in until it is combined with a wooden spoon and then use your mixer.)
  4. Add the flavours of your choice (see below) and either cook right away or freeze!
  5. If you are cooking the biscuits right away: Roll into teaspoon sized balls and press down with a fork (dip the fork in flour first so it doesn't stick).
  6. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  7. Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes until golden brown

    Note: For a less 'floury' biscuit - substitute half a cup of flour for 1/2 cup of custard powder.

To Freeze the Dough:

  1. After adding the flavours of your choice, roll the dough into a 20cm 'log' about 4cm or so thick.
  2. Place the cookie dough log onto a sheet of baking paper and roll up.  Twist the ends to seal, use a marker to note the flavour, and place on a flat surface in the freezer for up to four months.
  3. When you want fresh biscuits, preheat the oven to 180 degrees.  remove the frozen log from the freezer and whilst still frozen, unwrap and cut into 4mm slices or 'coins'.  Place the frozen dough pieces onto the baking tray and cook as directed.

These are some flavours suggested by you!

  • Chocolate chip or white chocolate chip

  • Hundreds and Thousands
  • Malted Milk
  • Milo and coconut
  • Peanut Butter (my favourite!)
  • Jam drops
  • Chocolate (add cocoa)
  • Chocolate with Dried Ginger
  • Dried Apricot with ginger and rolled in coconut.

  • Dip the uncooked dough into coloured raw sugar (add food colouring to raw sugar).

You could add any number of other things like Rice Bubbles, Smarties, nuts, cinnamon and other spices and so on. The raw mixture can be frozen in balls, just thaw slightly before baking.

Sweetened Condensed Milk Substitute

If you have run out of cans of condensed milk - here is a home made version for you to try.

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix all ingredients and use as a substitute for sweetened condensed milk in recipes for pies, bars and desserts.

Recipe Tips and Hints:

  • Another way to freeze the dough is to roll teaspoon sized pieces of dough into balls and freeze on a lined baking tray, then place the small balls in a ziplock bag to freeze for up to three months.
  • Substitute half the butter for an additional egg for a healthier version
  • Condensed milk can also be substituted with Caramel Top n Fill for a naughtier version.
  • If you wish to use cookie cutters, add more plain flour to make the dough stiffer.
