500g butter or marg (I always use butter)
1 cup sugar
1 can sweetened condensed milk
5 cups SR Flour
Cream the butter and sugar together (I use the Kenwood).
Mix in the condensed milk until well combined.
Fold in the flour. I have found that I may need to add in more flour if the dough is sticky. Sometimes 5 cups is enough, but other times like today I used 6.5 cups.
Either leave plain or knead in desired flavours.
Roll teaspoonfuls (I use the large end of a melon baller) into balls, flatten lightly and bake at 180C for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browns.
Alternatively roll dough into logs and cut 5mm slices and bake as above.
This makes heaps (about 4-5 Aunty Kaths logs worth or well over 100 biscuits depending on what you add and size) so you maye want to freeze the dough, it freezes well.
The logs can be wrapped in paping baker and then plastic wrap.
Or place the dough balls onto baking sheets, place in the freezer for about 30 minutes or so and then place the frozen balls into labelled ziplock bags.
Warning: The frozen dough balls are rather addictive.
Flavours I have made are:
Sultana and Cornflake
White Choc and Craisin
Today I made two new flavours and haven't baked them yet:
Apricot, Oat and Coconut
Rolled the log in Cinnamon Sugar
