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!
Wow what a great biscuit. We loved this crispy little treat. These biscuits were quick and really easy to make, with a beautiful texture. I made exactly as written but half the batch had nuts and half didn't , as my dh is allergic. Thanks so much for sharing this gem mummamills. Made for Aussie Swap Jan 2014.

You are right in stating these are nothing like American Chocolate Chip Cookies. :) When I first chose this recipe for the July 2010 Aussie/NZ recipe swap I didn't notice it is also egg free! Loved that - in case I don't have any on hand - I can still make cookies! The kids love these. As someone else said - the condensed milk does give a different flavor than what we would expect from a chocolate chip cookie. I doubled the recipe so as to use a whole can of milk. I also split the chocolate chips between mini semi sweet and peanut butter chips per request of son #3. Instead of macadamias we used walnuts. Thanks for sharing!
Made these exactly to the recipe but chose not to add the optional nuts. These are good, but very different than any other chocolate chip cookie(biscuit) I have had before. I loved using the self rising flour, less measuring and mixing!! I will now use this flour to make these cookies, but use brown sugar, vanilla and eggs in place of the condensed milk, as it gives a total different taste and texture. Thanks mumma for posting and introducing me to the self rising flour!!!
