bickie / bikkie /ˈbɪki/

Example 1: The Dara Cinema was a cinema at one time, but it’s been transformed into a wonderful concert hall with a huge foyer where people can just hang around and chat, drink tea and eat lots of bikkies. (http://trippinthesixties.com/Barry's%20Blog%20past.html)  

Example 2: In fact, I love chocky [chocolate] bickies as much as the next person and eat them when I want them. (http://blogs.theage.com.au/lifestyle/asksam/archives/2006/11/do_men_prefer_s.html)
