Saturdays I usually do baking. Today it was biscuits (cookies).
This is one of my favourite recipes.
1/2 of a 400g tin sweetened condensed milk
225g butter (softened)
2tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 180deg C.
Cream condensed milk, butter and sugar together.
Mix in sifted flour and baking powder and then mix in chocolate.
Shape spoonfuls, place onto baking tray and cook until lightly browned (about 10-15mins).
Cool on a rack and enjoy!
If you're like me and prefer soft biscuits, take them out just as they start colouring. When cooked to golden brown they're crisp and crunchy when cooled.
You can use any form of chocolate in these biscuits - chocolate chips, buttons, a chocolate block broken in chunks, mixed white and dark, mini M&M's (as pictured above), and you can even add 1/2c of nuts to the mix also (roasted cashews are yum!)
And because it uses half a tin of condensed milk, I usually make a double batch so I don't have the other half a tin sitting in the fridge waiting to be used! (They freeze well.)
