I made these between baking 2 loaves of bread. They are quick, easy and tasty. The recipe was on a scrap of paper that was torn out of the Age several years ago. It has Gail Thomas's name on it.
90g. raw sugar, and extra for topping.
1 Tablespoon malt extract, liquid.
1Tablespoon sweetened condensed milk.
1 cup S.R. flour
90g of sultanas if you wish. (I left these out as I wanted a very plain biscuit )
Set oven for 180c, FF
Place raw sugar in bowl of TMX and zap to make like caster sugar.
Add softened butter, and cream 4 mins. on speed 3, scrape down bowl.
Add milk and malt and mix, speed 3 , 2 mins.
Tip in flour and on REVERSE mix for 30 seconds.
Using a small icecream scoop,(2 1/2cm.) or a teaspoon, place small mounds on to lined baking trays. (makes 28)
With a glass with a flat base dip base into extra sugar and lightly press on to each biscuit.
Bake for 15 mins. Cool on tray for 5 mins. and then on wire rack.
