Cheap and Easy Cookies
This is easy, quick, cheap and it makes 7 or 8 dozen cookies, which keep well. The dough and cooked cookies keep well in the freezer. I use butter and wholemeal flour, but white flour and margarine can be substituted.
makes 7-8 dozen, cook 10 min at 180C
500 grams butter (approx 1.1 lb)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup sugar
5 cups wholemeal self raising flour (or 5 cups plain flour and 5 tsp baking powder)
toppings like choc chips, smarties, jam, cinnamon and sugar
cream butter and sugar, add condensed milk. stir in flour. roll into balls and flatten. top with choc chips etc, or thumbprint and add jam for jam drops.
bake at 180C for approx 10 min until golden brown. cool on racks
