Basic Cookie Recipe


  • 250g (8 1/2 oz) Butter
  • 100g  (1/2 Cup) Sugar
  • 6 tsp Condensed Milk
  • A few drops Vanilla Essence
  • 350g (2 1/4 Cups) Plain Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • M&Ms


Cream the butter and sugar together in a large mixing bowl.

Add the condensed milk and a few drops of vanilla essence.

Sift the flour and baking powder into the mixture and mix.

The mixture is likely to appear crumbly, once you start rolling the biscuits together it is fine.

Roll into balls, place on a tray lined with baking paper, and flatten – should make about 16.

Bake at 180C/350F for 8 minutes – remove from the oven.


Add M&M’s and return to the oven for another 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
