On the weekend, we had Irini and Stephen’s cousin over, and I thought that baking was the perfect activity for us to do together. I had this recipe jotted down, and I know it is from a blog, but I cannot remember who it is from – if you know, or if it is your blog, please let me know so I can update and link to you accordingly!
This recipe is perfect for baking together as it is a) easy, and b) really easy to have the kids individually involved, rather than having to take turns.
Mix In Cookies
500 g butter
1 cup sugar
1 tin condensed milk
5 cups self-raising flour
mix-ins of your choice (i used choc chips, rainbow mini choc chips, and 100s and 1000s)
Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in condensed milk and flour until a dough forms. Split into three bowls, and add individual mix-ins to each bowl, and then get the kids to mix in the mix-ins. Scoop tablespoons of mixture onto a greased or lined baking tray (i used a separate tray for each variety), and get the kids to flatten their cookies with a fork. Bake for 10-15 minutes in a preheated 180 C (350 F) oven. Cool on oven rack and then devour!! One batch literally makes over 100 cookies.
