This is a fabulously economical cookie recipe - its variations are only limited by your imagination. I have included some variation suggestions for this recipe - including a freezer variation in the notes.
Then, add condensed milk, flour and baking powder. Mix to combine.
At this point you have the option to add variety to your cookies. I like to split the dough into 3 or 4 different bowls and add either;
-Chocolate Chips, or
-a tablespoon of cocoa powder or Milo or drinking chocolate and tablespoon of chopped nuts, or
-a tablespoon of Marmalade, or
-rolled oats, coconut and cinnamon, or
-dried fruit; or anything else you like in your cookies.
Once the dough is ready roll into teaspoon sized balls and press down with a fork. Place on greased trays and bake in moderate oven until golden brown for approximately 10-15 minutes.
Once I have added the different ingredients I often freeze some of the dough in a long roll with grease proof paper around it, until I want to cook them. The dough is fine in the freezer for about a month. When I feel like cookies I just take the dough out of the freezer, leave it on the counter for 10 to 15 minutes, slice into cookie size pieces and bake.
I love this recipe and it has quickly became a household favouriteWith half the dough i freeze and the other half make biscuits for our lunches for a week. Then pull out the other frozen half and theres our biscuits for another week! Just have to add what i want. Time saving, Money saving, Tasty, and Easy!! Thanks for an awesome recipe. - 08 Jul 2011
