Condensed milk, otherwise known as divine nectar, is normally used in my house for making the wonderful Scottish confection of Tablet. For once, however, I decided to break free from by routine and try making something new, and the results were pretty sweet (pun very much intended 😉 ). It may be relatively expensive, but there’s no denying that condensed milk makes delicious cookies.
170g self raising flour
115g caster sugar
115g chocolate chunks / raisins
4 tablespoons of condensed milk
- Combine the flour and sugar in a large bowl, then chop in the butter.
- Continue mixing the flour, sugar and butter until it is well blended, at which point it will start to look like breadcrumbs.
- Stir in the chocolate or fruit and condensed milk then knead until it forms one ball.
- If you have time, refrigerate for a few minutes, then roll into balls and flatten.
- Bake on a very lightly greased tray at 180oC / Gas Mark 4 for 10 minutes (until golden brown)
- Remove them from the oven and lay out on a rack to cool.
