You're welcome to try this recipe. It makes a big batch, so you can always freeze some. Mine too has quite alot of sugar, but they are yummy!

Has anyone got a nice but simple recipe for these please. The ones I have found involved rolling out and cutting. Wasn't too keen on the fiddling round.

sher48, most bran biscuit recipes that I have seen do indeed involve "rolling and cutting" but here, from the former Trademe Cooks, is a couple that don't and you may like them.

"Anything Biscuits
use any amount of condensed milk. Place the milk in a bowl. Add some crushed cereal (weetbix, cornflakes, sultana bran, etc. ), some dried fruit (sultana's, glace cherries, chopped, raisins, craisins, chopped dates etc. , some coconut, chopped nuts, etc. anything you like. Add enough ingredients to make the mix very firm - firm enough to place spoonsful on baking paper lined trays. Bake at 180°C until golden and cool on the paper. This makes lovely caramelly/chewy bikkies that taste wonderful. posted by juliewn"
