Choc Chip Cookies: An old favourite

I was in a baking frame of mind today. This often happens when the outside temperature is chilly and the sun decides not to grace the day. It's nice to create warmth and sweet aromas throughout the house on days like this. I think I have done the Anzac Cookies to within an inch of their life. Not that I am receiving any complaints from the boys. They gobble them down as quickly as I can bake them up. 

But I decided to try these trusty little numbers. Oh so buttery and sweet AND chocolatey! Angus assisted me in whipping up a fine batch, just in time for afternoon tea. They are a classic cookie and we will most certainly be adding them to the regular baking rotation. 

Choc Chip Cookies

225g Butter, softened and chopped
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
2 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk choc bits (I used Nestle... recipe calls for 3/4 cup, but I like my cookies extra choc chippy!)

Preheat the oven to 190 degrees
Cream butter and sugar in a medium bowl using an electric mixer
Beat in sweetened condensed milk
Cream until mixture is light and fluffy
Sift flour and baking powder
Stir into butter mixture with milk choc bits
Rolls tablespoonfuls of mixture into balls
Place on greased and lined oven trays
Press biscuits down gently to flatten
Bake in heated oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown


  1. YUM!! How good do these look? We are huge choc chip fans in this house...must try this recipe as I have not seen the addition of condensed milk before.

    My all time favourite recipe for these biscuits is a Curtis Stone recipe....absolutely divine.

  2. These look yummy. Mr Small and I may have a crack at making them today. Thank you x

  3. They look delicious! I think I'll have to make them this week too! Hubby will appreciate them in his lunch each day I'm sure. :) x

  4. Yum! These looks like something that I could make. I don't have a great track record with biscuits for some reason. I like the sound of the condensed milk too for something different.

    If I hadn't attempted to make playdough this morning and discovered that we had no plain flour, I'd be making these right now!!

  5. I do love Anzac bickies. But those choc chip ones sound, and look equally as yummy!!

    Thanks for sharing x

  6. They seriously look DELISH! But the problem when I bake stuff like this is that I eat it!

    Of course, I share sometimes...


  7. wow they look delish! i dont like to cook alot but these seem easy so i shall give them a go. x

  8. These remind me of the ones my Mum used to make, yummo!!
