To Make: Many Biscuits

by Kate on December 7, 2010

These guys are definitely a Christmas tradition in my family.

My Nan bakes up a batch every year and gives a jar to each grandchild, she even posted them to me when I lived in London.

Merry Christmas..

This Christmas, I am baking up a batch for some special people in my life and thought I would share the biscuit love with you guys.

To make my Nan’s ‘many biscuits’ you will need:
500g butter – softened
1/4 cup condensed milk
4 teaspoons of baking powder
Splash of vanilla essence
1.5 cups caster sugar
4 cups of plain flour
Makes roughly 4 – 5 dozen biscuits

Chopped glace cherries
chopped uncrystallised ginger
choc chips
chopped nuts


 (Note: all measurements are in metric)


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (fan forced)
  2. Cream together butter, sugar, vanilla and condensed milk
  3. Gradually blend in flour and baking powder
  4. Once all ingredients are combined, roll teaspoon shape balls and place onto a baking tray
  5. Flatten a little with a fork and add your desired toppings*
  6. Bake in oven for around 15 minutes until nice and golden
Many Biscuits..

I hope you enjoy them as much as us!

*My Nan usually splits the biscuit batter into 4 equal parts and mixes choc chips into one, chopped. nuts into the other then balls and tops the other two parts with the cherries and ginger. I just rolled and topped.
