I've been asked for a few recipes so thought I'd start by posting the one for 'Milo Biscuits' this morning. Not sure if I've mentioned before but I get up at 5am every morning. It's the best time of day and I actually manage to get a lot done before the house awakes!! (have tried getting up later but still crash at the same time in the evening so came to the conclusion I am a morning person). Anyway most mornings there will be baking happening in our house for the school lunchboxes and these biscuits are a favorite. Very easy, the kids love them and even better they sometimes last more than one day.......................
MILO ENERGY BISCUITS
125g butter (needs to be quite soft)
1/2 cup sugar ( I use white sugar)
1/2 cup brown sugar ( you can use raw sugar)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups self raising flour
1/2 cup Milo (powder)
Beat butter, sugars and vanilla until light and creamy.
Beat in egg.
Fold in sifted flour and Milo ( mixture will be quite stiff depending on how soft the butter was)
Roll mixture into balls and place on greased tray. Flatten with fork.
Bake in 180'C oven for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
Makes 40 or more depending on how big you make them.
