There is nothing quite so lovely as the smell of baking biscuits. It makes me want to draw a nice hot bath, curl up with a book and disappear into a relaxed state of happiness.
Biscuits are wonderful treats. They bring people together, make amends, start conversations, end troubles and remind us of the good things so easily forgotten. I am sure that wars would come to an end if soldiers were given half the chance to sit down on the battlefields with a strong cup of tea and a nice home-made biscuit.
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tin condensed milk
1/2 cup peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
1/2 cup brown sugar
Sift the dry ingredients (excluding the sugar) into a large mixing bowl.
In another bowl, blend the butter, peanut butter and condensed milk until well mixed. Slowly add the sugar and continue to mix until you have a smooth, even consistency. Add this to the dry ingredients and mix well to make dough.
Knead the dough 30-40 times and divide it into 4 equal parts. Each part will make 12 biscuits and can be frozen for a later use if you don’t want to make a lot of biscuits. To use frozen dough just let it defrost and bake as normal.
Spoon 12 small balls of dough onto a baking sheet. Press with a fork and bake in a preheated oven at 180 C for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cook for 1 minute before moving to stop the biscuits breaking.
Serve freshly baked and warm! Yummy!
