The recipe is one from my mum's collection - it's fabulous!
BULK REFRIGERATOR BISCUITS - Makes 100
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspn vanilla
4 cups flour
¼ cup cornflour
1 tblspn baking powder

Cream together butter, sugar and vanilla, until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Mix dry ingredients together and work into the creamed mixture.
Divide dough in ¼ s and add any of the following:
½ cup coconut
1 tblspn cocoa
½ cup cornflakes
½ cup currants or sultanas
almond essence and top each biscuit with an almond.
Form into 4 rolls, wrap in foil and freeze. (I use gladwrap)Chill first if too soft to handle. Thaw until soft enough to slice. Cut into 1 cm slices. Place on greased baking tray. 180 degrees c about 15 mins.
Last year I did them all choc drops and dried apricots coarsely chopped. This year I split it into 4 and did
* choc drops & dried apricots
* dried apricots, white choc and coconut
* afghan style - cornflakes and cocoa (I iced them with choc icing and added a wee slice of almond on top)
* 'santa's buttons' - pushed an indent in the centre of each one and filled with jam before baking
Yum! Penny selected some tonight for Santa - they're sitting on a wee table in the lounge with a glass of milk, the fireplace door is also open so Santa can come down the chimney and there is water and reindeer food outside.
