Condensed milk choc chip biscuits

Today I made my favourite cookies in the whole wide world! they are by Janelle Bloom and are in her cookbook Fast Fresh & Fabulous. They make 40 so they last all week (well half the week with Dave in the house!!) If you ever get a spare day make sure you try them my friends always scoff them down when they come over!

Condensed milk choc chip biscuits
Makes 40

250g butter, softened, chopped
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/2 x 395g can sweetened condensed milk
2 1/2 cups plain flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
375g choc bits or chopped milk chocolate (I've tried white choc chips too!)

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius no fan 170 degrees Celsius fan-forced. line four baking trays with baking paper (hint: I use a macaroon tray and they always come out perfect circles!) 
  2. Using electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and condensed milk until pale and creamy. Sift flour and baking powder together over the butter mixture and mix until the dough almost comes together. Add chocolate and stir until well distributed.
  3. Roll heaped tablespoons of mixture into balls and place onto baking trays, allowing a little room for spreading. Flatten slightly with fingertips or a fork.
  4. Bake two trays at a time for 9-12 minutes until light golden. Stand for 5 minutes on trays before transferring biscuits to a wire rack to cool.
