Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.

3 in 1 biscuits

When the Guides made these biscuits we were able to use a significant color that represented the Patrol that mixed, kneaded and cut them.  Therefore those that ate their mix soon became aware that what actually went into the oven was what they could share around their patrol. This in itself was an interesting learning curve when the consequences of eating their patrols dough mix were related back to the Guide Laws.

Serving Size: Makes 36


  • 250g butter, softened
  • ¾ cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ½ cups plain flour
  • 8-10 drops red food colouring
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder


Cream the butter and sugar together with a spoon in a bowl or using an electric mixer. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth. Add the flour and mix until a smooth dough forms.

Divide the dough into four. Colour one portion with red food colouring and another with cocoa powder. I did this in separate small bowls with a knife, but you could knead the colour in.

Wrap the four dough portions separately in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper.

Roll each piece of dough on a floured surface into a rectangle shape about 18cm x 20cm. To make swirly biscuits, place the pink dough on top of the plain dough, trim edges into a neat rectangle and roll into a log.

Repeat with the other plain dough and chocolate dough. To make the marbled biscuits, knead the trimmings together and roll into a log.

Slice the logs into 5mm width biscuits. Place biscuits on baking trays and cook for about 15 minutes until golden.
