Milk biscuits

These were one of first biscuits I baked. At that time I had used sugar instead of condensed milk. But this version turned out to be a super duper hit. They remind you of the milk biscuits you get in India. Flax seeds adds a nice crunchy topping and also a slight healthy element to the biscuits. They go very well with a nice cup of tea or coffee. Hope you will give it a try.

All purpose flour/Maida-1 cup
Salt-a pinch
Unsalted butter- 1/2 stick
Condensed milk-1/4 cup
Milk-1/3 cup
Vanilla essence-1 teaspoon
Flax seeds for topping (optional)

Preheat the oven to 180 C. 

Sift together the flour and salt. Cream the butter and the condensed milk until smooth. Add in the essence and milk and mix well. Now combine the flour little by little until you have a smooth dough. Roll it out into 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out shapes using cookie cutters. Sprinkle some flax seeds on top and slightly press. Bake for 10 mins or until edges are light brown. Enjoy with a cup of tea/coffee and your favorite book.

1. You could use sugar instead of condensed milk.
2. You can replace all purpose flour with whole wheat 
    pastry flour.
3. Add your own toppings or leave it out.
4. Using coconut milk gives you a nice twist on these 
    wonderful delights.
