These are a very "moresome" bikky:) I used to sell these at the local markets, and they always sold out first. Very easy to make, and to really show off, you can throw a handful of chopped macadamia nuts in, gives them an extra crunch!!! PLEASE NOTE, THESE ARE NOTHING LIKE AMERICAN CHOC CHIP COOKIES, WHICH ARE SOFT AND CHEWY. I have also added coco powder to the mix and used white chips, looks good, but the white chips stay very hard.
- 250 g butter
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 200 g condensed milk (1/2 can)
- 2 1⁄2 cups self raising flour
- 3⁄4 cup chocolate chips
- 3⁄4 cup chopped macadamia nuts (optional)
- Cream together the butter and sugar.
- Add the condensed milk and keep beating for 2 minutes.
- Fold through the flour, then the choc chips. The mixture will be tacky.
- Place teaspoons full on your baking tray (either greased or baking pepper).
- Flatten slightly with a floured fork.
- Bake at ABOUT (all stoves are different) 160°C for about 15 minutes, or till golden.
- Leave on trays for 3 minutes, then cool on wire racks.
These are amazing! I made a double batch, simply because I had no other use for the other half a can on condensed milk, and I'm glad I did! They are a huge hit with my kids! I left out the macadamia nuts, but added a little extra of the choc chips. When I was putting them on the trays, I made some by rolling them into little balls and let them flatten naturally in the oven, and the rest i just dropped off the spoon. I took photos of both as I wasn't sure which you would like best, but personally I think the drop ones look better, they look rustic and yummy! [Made for Aus/NZ Swap]
Wow, these are so good and very simple to make (even when making your own self raising flour and sweetened condensed milk). After folding in the flour, I went to my baking cabinet to get some chocolate chips only to discover that the kitchen gremlins (AKA my DH and children) had eaten them all. I didn't have time to run to the store, so I chopped up some dried apricots and folded them in. Yummy!!! And they blend so nicely with the macadamia nuts. This is a definite keeper. Made and reviewed for the 31st AUS/NZ Recipe Swap. NOTE: Just had to add that EVERYONE at the recital loved these...they were the first to go!
This recipe is very good. I must say that I was a little confused to if the recipe needed evaporated milk or sweet condensed milk. But I tried the recipe with sweet condensed milk and they turned out fine. Will make again soon!!!
