  1. Preheat oven 180 degrees.

  2. Cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

  3. Add the condensed milk and sifted self raising flour, mix to form a dough. (If you are using an electric beater or Mixmaster, fold the flour in until it is combined with a wooden spoon and then use your mixer.)

  4. Add the flavours of your choice (see below) and either cook right away or freeze!

  5. If you are cooking the biscuits right away: Roll into teaspoon sized balls and press down with a fork (dip the fork in flour first so it doesn't stick).

  6. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

  7. Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes until golden brown

    Note: For a less 'floury' biscuit - substitute half a cup of flour for 1/2 cup of custard powder.

  8. After adding the flavours of your choice, roll the dough into a 20cm 'log' about 4cm or so thick.

  9. Place the cookie dough log onto a sheet of baking paper and roll up.  Twist the ends to seal, use a marker to note the flavour, and place on a flat surface in the freezer for up to four months.

  10. When you want fresh biscuits, preheat the oven to 180 degrees.  remove the frozen log from the freezer and whilst still frozen, unwrap and cut into 4mm slices or 'coins'.  Place the frozen dough pieces onto the baking tray and cook as directed.

  11. Chocolate chip or white chocolate chip

  12. Cornflakes and sultanas

  13. Hundreds and Thousands

  14. Malted Milk

  15. Milo and coconut

  16. Peanut Butter (my favourite!)

  17. Jam drops

  18. Chocolate (add cocoa)

  19. Chocolate with Dried Ginger

  20. Dried Apricot with ginger and rolled in coconut.

  21. White Chocolate and Macadamia Nut.

  22. Sultana and Orange Zest

  23. Sandwich two together with custard icing

  24. Dip the uncooked dough into coloured raw sugar (add food colouring to raw sugar).

  25. 2 eggs

  26. 1 cup brown sugar

  27. 1 teaspoon vanilla

  28. 2 tablespoons flour

  29. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  30. 1/4 teaspoon salt

  31. Another way to freeze the dough is to roll teaspoon sized pieces of dough into balls and freeze on a lined baking tray, then place the small balls in a ziplock bag to freeze for up to three months.

  32. Substitute half the butter for an additional egg for a healthier version

  33. Condensed milk can also be substituted with Caramel Top n Fill for a naughtier version.

  34. If you wish to use cookie cutters, add more plain flour to make the dough stiffer.
