Milo Biscuits

I originally found this recipe on the internet after doing a search, because I had a tin of Milo that was well past its use-by date and was trying to find ways of using it up. I've changed it slightly since, and these biscuits are worth making even if your Milo isn't a bit old!

Cream together butter and sugar, then add an egg and some Milo. Stir in oats (and some sultanas if you like), then flour to make a slightly crumbly dough.

Make little balls of dough, put on a baking sheet not too close together, and flatten slightly with a fork. Cook for 12-15 mins at 180 C. Leave to cool on tray for a while to become firm before moving to a cooling rack.

125 g butter, soft
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup Milo
1/4 cup porridge/quick oats
1 1/2 cup self-raising flour

Milo Bicuits, what a great idea.

Arista, I have a Milo biscuit recipe and they are lovely, but only moderately 'miloey'. Do you think your recipe has more flavour of milo? It's such a fab recipe:)

Coby - I think these taste pretty Miloey. The first time I made them they weren't strong enough so I increased the amount. I suppose more could be added to give more of a hit!

(the increased amount is in the ingredient list)

Hi Arista, is it ok to use rolled oats instead?

Hello Anonymous - sorry for the delay in responding, I'm sure rolled oats would be fine, I'd say you'd end up with a more crumbly cookie. I must make these again, haven't made them for ages!
