A spot of baking, with a new-to-me recipe. It's been doing the rounds around here, and it's just so simple. You may have seen it, if not here it is.
500g butter, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 tin condensed milk
5-6 cups SR flour
Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Cream butter and sugar. Mix in condensed milk and flour.
Roll into teaspoon sized balls, and place on a lined baking tray. Flatten slightly with a fork.
Bake for 10-15 minutes.
These can be flavoured in any way you please. This batch is choc mint, using cocoa and peppermint essence. But the possibilities are endless- chopped dried fruits and nuts, choc chips, coconut, lemon zest, rolled oats, jam for jam drops, the list goes on.
This recipe like the name suggests makes a lot of cookies. I used maybe a quarter of the mix, and froze the rest, Simply rolled into a sausage shape and wrapped in baking paper; all ready to be sliced and baked at short notice.
