Homemade arrowroot biscuits

Yes I love baking, and i love eating! not always the best mix. Lumpy LOVES milk arrowroots (I assume its genetic because It was one of her dad's fav foods).

This is the recipe i used. The first 2 trays are done!
Blog for the recipe
Homemade Arrowroot Biscuits


2 cups wheat flour (self-raising)

1 cup icing sugar (or confectioners)

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup condensed milk

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup arrowroot flour

1 egg


Mix all dry ingredients together well, then stir in condensed milk and oil into well in the centre of dry mix. Stir well and when bound together, knead until smooth. Roll out at about half a centimetre thick and cut with round cutter. Bake at 150° for about 15 mins or until pale golden. (i assume the egg was meant to go in with the oil and condensed milk)

I used a small scone cutter - make smore and sugar portion control (it is a still sugar and sugar and lumpy are not the best of friends!!)

As you can see it made lots of biscuits!
I learnt on the second lot to go in the oven to prick them with a fork to reduce puffing.

verdict = YUMMMMY
