Malt Biscuits

 
Malt Biscuits
This is directly from the Australian Thermomix Forum and is originally credited to Gail Thomas in The Age newspaper.  So yummy.  These bikkies have a really lovely crisp and chewy texture.

Ingredients:
  • 125g softened Butter
  • 90g  Sugar
  • 1 tab (40g) liquid Malt Extract
  • 1 tab (40g)  Condensed Milk
  • 1 cup (170g) SR Flour
Method:
  • Preheat oven 180degC
  • Place Sugar into TMX and hit turbo for a couple of seconds to make caster sugar
  • Add Butter and cream for 4 minutes on Speed 3, scraping down sides
  • Add Condensed Milk and Malt Extract and mix for 2 minutes on Speed 3
  • Add Flour and mix on Reverse until well combined, Speed 3 (about 10 seconds)
  • With a couple of teaspoons, place small 'blobs' on an oven tray (no need for greasing)
  • Bake for 15 minutes, watching carefully.  Cool on tray 5 minutes and transfer to wire rack.
  • Makes about 35+ biscuits.  About 20 might make it to the bikkie-barrel

Verdict:
So easy and so delicious.  And any excuse to use Condensed Milk is great, I say!! 

Tweeks
The original recipe says to use the bottom of a glass, dipped in extra sugar, to slightly flatten and coat the biscuit before cooking.  I don't think it needs the extra sugar coating,  but try it yourself.  You could also add some sultanas....  but I'd personally keep them the lovely thin crisp and chewy bikkies that they are without.

  1. Have you tried doubling the recipe? Highly recommend it! No scraping required with the bigger quantity ;)
    These are such a great bickie, we love them! We use nuttelex and they work perfectly :)

  2. Gosh, what a treasured find your blog is! Your tongue-in-cheek style and actually yummy recipes are a welcome inspiration after the numbing process of learning failsafe cooking. We are dairy free, so I need to 'tweek' a little more, but there's plenty there for me to fiddle with :) KEEP IT UP!! Elizabeth
