Malteser biscuits
« on: August 31, 2010, 03:36:47 pm »
I adapted this recipe from one that a school mum submitted to our school cookbook fundraiser.

Malteser Biscuits

Makes approx 50

Ingredients
250g butter, softened
70g white sugar
70g brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 tin (approx 200g I think?) condensed milk
2 tsp vamilla essence
165g maltesers
300g SR flour
75g plain flour

Method
Preheat oven to 180deg. Place butter and sugars in TM bowl and cream on Speed 4 for 2-5 min or until butter is light and pale, you may need to stop the TM and scrape the butter mixture off the sides of the bowl half way through. Once creamed continue to run the TM at Speed 4 and add the condensed milk and vanilla essence through the lid and cream for 1 more minute at speed 4. Add the maltersers and mix for 5 sec at speed 5, this will roughly chop them at the same time. Add the flours and fold through by mixing at reverse speed 3 for 20 seconds. Roll mixture into walnut sized balls and place onto baking trays allowing room for biscuits to spread. Gently press the bisuits with the back of a fork,spoon or your fingers to flatten them slightly. Bake 12-15 minutes. Stand for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

CP -  I made half the condensed milk recipe myself and didn't follow it properly, then I didn't weigh it in as I was making them (too busy tasting the mixture). Biscuits tasted great but I think I can do a better job next time/week.

thought i would make this today and bought the big packet of maltesers. thought that there would be a few extra for the cook before i make them... the packet was only 155g! took a couple out anyway and think i'll make it tomorrow  >:(

The original recipe calls for 165g maltesers, but I just buy the 155g packet.

Well i knew i wasn't going to be THAT strong, so I made them up last night. i made half the condensed milk recipe myself and didn't follow it properly, and then I didn't weigh it in as i was making them (too busy tasting the mixture). Biscuits tasted great, but I think I can do a better job next time/week  ;D thats my excuse anyway to go buy another packet (maybe 2, so I get the full 165g measurement)  ;)
