The secret recipe is out

To keep us all amused at home Arnott's have released the secret recipes for our favourite biscuits. A chance to use up some of the flour in our pantries.

This is the first time in history, Australians will be able to bake the classic cream and jam biscuits in their own kitchens. You could whip up a batch in 24 minutes. The perfect companion for that afternoon cuppa.

These Australian sweet biscuits have been manufactured since 1926. Although factory automation began in the 1950s.

Of course, they are unlikely to turn out as uniform as the factory produced items. But you can bring your own flair and baking style - they'll be full of the fun and memories where you remember the time you baked a delicious Arnott's creation.

Ironically Nadine, I was eating a Monte Carlo when your recipe appeared. My packet came from the supermarket, on special at half price. Good value, although I may be tempted to try the recipe. Neil.
