Another month and joining in with The Spiced Life and athomewithrebecka with The creative Cookie Exchange
The theme for this month was 'make ahead'. Here are some make ahead Chocolate Chip Cookies.
This must be on of the most simplest recipes ever- and one that I had fun making too- I had a little help whilst babysitting my friend's little girl- we decided to go ahead and make some cookies.
Such a simple recipe, even a child could do it! I had a little help:)
As you may know, my oven decided to die a death and so oven less, I had to resort to keeping the mixture in the fridge until they could get baked.
This worked perfectly- The mixture keeps happily in the fridge, covered, for about a week, but if you want to make these ahead and freeze them- that works too- just shape the mixture into balls, freeze and then bake as required.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
350g Self- raising Flour
100g Chocolate chip cookies
170g Condensed milk
225g unsalted butter
225g Caster sugar
Preheat oven to 180 c (160 for fan ovens) Gas Mark 4
In a large bowl cream the butter, sugar and condensed milk until light and fluffy
Mix in the flour until a soft dough and then mix in chocolate chips.
Roll the dough into walnut size balls and place on baking sheet- flatten them down slightly. Space well apart as they will spread.
Bake for 12-15 mins
The dough will keep happily in the fridge for a week or so- or freeze the dough balls and bake when required.
