First batch out of the oven.. with choc chips

This is a recipe I’ve adapted from the $21 Dollar Challenge Book. If your focus is on bulk biscuits at minimal cost the original recipe here has the cheapest ingredients.

My version includes a few items that would cost more but which I’m happier using such as raw sugar, and organic flours. I also changed the recipe to add some wholemeal flour.

One of the fantastic things about this recipe is how changeable it is – you can add all sorts of goodies to add variety – so far I’ve experimented  with vanilla, cocoa, crushed walnuts, choc-chips, and some coconut.

A biscuit 'roll' ready for the freezer

I bake one batch of biscuits on the day I make the recipe and then freeze the rest of the dough in hand-rolled cylinders, wrapped in plastic wrap. I can pull these out of the freezer as I need them, simply cutting off biscuit sized slices from the roll and putting them straight on the baking tray to cook – very handy when unexpected guests arrive!


500gr butter or margarine

1 cup raw sugar

1 tin condensed milk

4 cups organic plain flour

1 cup wholemeal flour

2 teaspoons baking powder


Cream the butter and sugar together, then add condensed milk.

Put the 5 cups of flour and baking powder in a large bowl, then add butter/sugar/condensed milk, mixing well with wooden spoon. Add extra ingredients you’d like (the sky’s almost the limit!)

Roll into balls and place on greased biscuit tray. Press down gently with a fork.

Bake in oven at 180 degree celcius until golden brown.

Take out of oven, cool and enjoy!
