Hokey Pokey Biscuits

125 grams butter, softened
25 g golden syrup
1 Tbs milk
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
230 g plain flour

Preheat oven to 180įC.

Add sugar to TMX bowl and mill for 3 seconds on speed 9.

Add butter and mix on speed 3 for 1-2 minutes until light and creamy.

Place golden syrup and milk into a heat proof microwave-safe jug. Microwave for 20 to 30 seconds on HIGH (100%) power or until hot.

Stir in bicarbonate of soda (mixture will bubble up).

Add warm milk mixture to butter mixture and mix on speed 3 for 30 seconds.

Add flour and mix on speed 4 + Reverse for 30 seconds until well combined.

Roll teaspoonfuls of mixture at a time into balls. Place onto prepared baking trays, allowing a little room for spreading. Gently press biscuits down with a floured fork.

Stand on trays for 3 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Virgo9 - Made these last night for school lunch boxes - I put a choc bit in the middle of each one. So quick to make. Thanks for sharing.

Narelle - I made these and froze it in to rolls.  Have since sliced and cooked one roll and my girls LOVED them!  Very, very easy and a great freezer recipe.  Would double easily too I imagine. Thanks for posting!

NICKY74 - thanks kathryn, I made a double batch with a choc button on top too. Had visitors with toddlers and everyone loved these.

JD - I just filled the bikkie barrel too Kathryn - lovely recipe.  12 minutes was plenty for my oven. Will try the choc button on top next time.

CP - made these the other day but didn't get to try them as DS found them. They looked exactly like the picture tho.

Denzelmum - I burnt it a bit, DD loves the chocolate button.

Yes indeed Kathryn. Thank you. These caught my eye and then I saw the source and I have made them and love them. Thanks for converting a posting.

These were yummy. One tray was cooked more than the other, and I preferred the ones that were cooked a little longer whilst the kids liked the softer, less cooked ones.

Made these today for the guest rooms.

I added Speculaas type spices to flour
used
2 level tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
scant 1/4 tsp white pepper
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4tsp ground mace
1/4 tsp grpund nutmeg
pinch salt
1/4 tsp ground cardamon

Method slightly different I make the dough as above then tip out and gently into two sausages, cling wrap and chill, cut and bake however many slices I need. Freeze remainder till next time.

I only bake biscuits for guests when full and guests staying more than one night, otherwise I buy in shortbread fingers in small packets of 2.

Hope you like the variation x DJ
