Condensed Milk Biscuits

When we go camping, or traveling anywhere for that matter, I always try to bake a batch of home-made biscuits.  People seem to need something to nibble on more often when on holiday, and these crisp biscuits travel well and are delicious.  The recipe makes a big batch of biscuits. 


Condensed Milk Biscuits

5 cups of cake flour
1 cup of cornflour (Maizena)
4 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
500 grs butter
1 cup of sugar
1 tin of condensed milk
3 Tbsps aniseed OR grated rind of 2 lemons OR glace cherries (optional)

  • Cream the butter and sugar
  • Add the condensed milk, and mix well
  • Mix together the dry ingredients, including either the aniseed or the lemon rind
  • Stir the dry ingredients into the creamed mixture
  • If the dough seems very soft, chill for 15 to 20 minutes
  • Either roll the dough out and cut with cookie cutters, or roll into little balls and squash slightly with a fork or press out with a biscuit gun

  • Place the biscuits on baking trays (decorate with cherries if you wish) and bake for 10 minutes at 180 degrees C, until slightly browned - be careful not to burn them

  • Cool on a cake rack
  • Pack into plastic jars suitable for traveling when cold.
These are really good with a cup coffee brewed on a camp-fire, perhaps sitting under a giant wild-fig tree, or watching dolphins and whales play in the sea in front of your camp site!


  1. sorry my friend, as good as these look I won't be able to test drive them xxx

  2. These recipe's are always great - but why is that you do not have a "print" version. Does not make sense to have them here for all to read and that is all you are able to do with it ........... Please make this "print" friendly

  3. Awesome stuff. Love condensed milk cookies. Thank you so much. Have copied and pasted and will definitely be making these soon. Hugs xx
