Vanilla Biscuits

20 Aug

These are a family favourite and another one pot wonder.   My brother used to make these when we were teenagers.  To further illustrate how good these are:  I once made a batch and set them out on my coffee table for afternoon tea.  A family member (who will remain nameless) ‘popped in’ and ate the whole plateful.  She just couldn’t help herself they are just so moreish.


  • 125g butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp milk
  • 1 Tbsp golden syrup
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • ½ cup sultanas
  • ½ tsp vanilla

Oven: preheat to 1.80.C


Place the first 5 ingredients into a saucepan until all melted. When cool, add flour sultanas and vanilla.  Roll into small balls and flatten with a fork.

Bake for about 10 mins or until slightly brown.


Don’t worry if this mixture seems really greasy, it is mean’t to be like that.

You can of course be creative with this mixture try adding chocolate, cornflakes or any other dried fruit.
