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.

120 cookies

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.

Any baking been happening in your kitchen lately?


  1. I like the idea of rolling and baking! A must try for the week end!

  2. Bloody brilliant! Aha... Guess what Im baking tomorrow. Thanks :-)

  3. Mmmmm thanks for sharing! May make these with my little girl x

  4. I've used this recipe before and it is great. You have reminded me to dig it out again and I've had a great idea to make some up and freeze the logs so I can bake some off when my husband comes home for a couple of weeks at Easter. Thanks for the reminder

  5. I love this recipe and now that the kids are back at school there is always rolls in the freezer ready and waiting :)
    Choc mint sounds like a lovely combo.


  6. I've used this recipe before too, and had forgotten all about it. I'm never forward-thinking enough to have any such thing in the freezer, time I got myself organised. Thanks for the recipe reminder!
