This mixture is kept in the fridge. It makes 8 cups, and I use it in 2 cupful lots to make different flavoured biscuits as required. 2 cups makes 24 biscuits.
To make orange biscuits, Use orange juice instead of the cold water.
2 cups mixture; 1/3 cup cold water; 1/2 cup choc., chips; 1/2 cup chopped nuts.
2 cups mixture 1 Tblsp milk 1 mashed banana 1 cup chopped peanuts
I love these biscuits! so versatile and having the mixture ready in the fridge means they can be ready in no time at all. I make the mixture at the weekend and then make biscuits throughout the week. - 19 Jul 2010
The hardest thing about this recipe is deciding what to add to the biscuit base, because the choice is endless. We usually do the chopped nuts and choc chips. We can have fresh biscuits ready within 15 min (prep and cooking) if visitors arrive and we have nothing to serve them. - 10 Nov 2012
these are good and enjoyed by the family. I love that by rubbing the butter in, all they need is some liquid - no creaming required! yah. great for whipping up quickly. I made choc chip with orange zest! super good. Next time I will blast it in the food processor rather than rub in the butter - 16 Sep 2012
