With the glut of strawberries this year and their bright red colour, it seemed a good ingredient to try baking with something red & white this Christmas… I hope you enjoy these easy-to-make, no-egg strawberry biscuits.

Red & white Christmas biscuits


228g unsalted butter, softened
1 tin (395g) condensed milk – about 2 cups
4 teaspoons vanilla essence
2 cups plain flour
4 teaspoons bicarb soda (or baking powder will work)
3 drops red food colouring (optional)
225g strawberries
3/4 cup white chocolate chips/bits
3 tablespoons green sanding or sparkling sugar (optional)


Cut up the strawberries into 6 to 8 chunks:

Chopped up fresh strawberries for baking with

Turn on the oven at 160°C, and grease a biscuit tray.

Cream the butter until it is a light yellow colour.

Add the condensed milk and vanilla, then mix thoroughly.

Stir in the flour and bicarb soda.

Gently fold in the strawberries and chocolate chips. Then add in the food colouring and mix lightly so you get a marbled red & white effect. Alternatively, to have all red biscuits, add in the food colouring before the strawberries and chocolate. And add more food colouring if you want brighter red biscuits!

Put tablespoons of biscuit dough onto the tray.

Sprinkle green sanding sugar over the biscuits to complete the Christmas colours. However, simple red & white biscuits are just as pretty if you don’t have any sanding sugar, or don’t want the added sugar!
