BOTSWANA- Lemon and Condensed Milk Biscuits

Mmm, these coo-biscuits are amazing! Too bad the footage wouldn’t work :(. Oh well, even though I don’t have any pictures, I’ll use descriptive words to make you want to eat it.

You will need for these delicious biscuits,

2 3/4 cups of flour (The base of deliciousness),

1/2 cup of sugar (Sweet, sweet, sugar),

2 tsp of baking powder (I really can’t think of anything to make baking powder more attractive),

1 lemon (Sour to balance out the sweet),

7 fl oz condensed milk (The better version of milk),

A pinch of salt (Just a pinch, a little pinch),

and 8 oz unsalted butter (Add texture, mmm),

First, preheat the oven to 335 degrees. Then get a food processor. We are going to make sugar even better. Pulse the sugar in the food processor until it’s delicious. Next, let’s use this lemon for a good cause. Grate 1/2 tsp of the rind, and juice 1/2 of it. Mmm

Next, cream the butter and the sugar. Mix it until it’s perfect.

Now, add the sweet, sweet, condensed milk and continue to stir. Perfect. Now add everything else so you get one delicious harmony. Don’t be afraid to eat the batter. There is no egg, so it’s perfect.

Now, take teaspoons of the dough and roll them into balls. Ooh, so much fun. Now flatten gently with a fork. Bake for 12-15 minutes. After just enough time has passed, take them out of the oven and enjoy your masterpiece.
