choc chip cookies

do not make these cookies. you have been warned. and here's the recipe:

Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes approximately 48

180 g butter softened
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup NESTLÉ Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
250 g packet NESTLÉ Dark CHOC BITS
1/2 cup NESTLÉ White CHOC BITS

Preheat oven to 180ºC. Beat butter and sugar until creamy, beat in NESTLÉ Sweetened Condensed Milk. Add flour, stir until combined. Add NESTLÉ Dark and White CHOC BITS, mix well. Roll heaped teaspoonfuls of mixture into small balls, place on greased trays, press gently with fork. Bake for 15 minutes until golden.

i got the recipe straight off the carnation sweetened condensed milk tin. so if you get that brand you might get the recipe too. don't be alarmed about the 'makes 48'. i found it made around half that amount. they'd have to be very tiny to get 48. also, they freeze wonderfully so i would strongly suggest freezing half of them unless you're giving them out to your friends and family. otherwise you might eat many. too many. believe it or not these babies are not calorie free cookies. also, i found they only needed around 10 mins in my oven. the first tray i baked were almost burnt so keep a close eye on them. eat one (or two!) for afternoon tea with a tall glass of skim milk. the goodness of the skim milk will surely cancel out the sugary buttery cookie. right!?

  1. just an extra note about the cooking time, i made another batch on the weekend and i undercooked the first tray, they had that uncooked flour taste, yuck. so don't undercook 'em!
