Top Review by Kim S.

I have been making these for 40 years, they are the most delicious biscuit. The original recipe from the Edmonds book had 3 tablespoons of condensed milk. It has somehow been transcribed as 3 teaspoons on most internet versions, which may explain why some people comment that they are quite dry.


  1. 1. Cream butter, sugar and condensed milk; add essence.
  2. 2. Add dry ingredients and chopped chocolate. Roll into small balls.
  3. 3. Place on cold greased trays. Flatten with a fork.
  4. 4. Bake for 20 minutes at 180 degrees celsius (350F).
