Condensed Milk Cookies

Somewhere I got a little booklet that nestle brought out that contains all those great recipes that they have on the labels. I have a lovely apple pie that uses 2 tablespoons of condensed milk, but then I stuck with the rest of the tin. It keeps well when decanted into a little glass container and sealed, then lives in the fridge until next time.

(Oh my I forgot to post this one before I left for the farm Dec. It was heck tick, please forgive me ... or I could just wait for next christmas ... I think you can make them anytime.)

We have been making these biscuits for years, great as pressies and look very festive with green and red glased cherries.

You will need

250 gr Margarine 3/4 cup sugar

1 tin condensed milk 3 1/2 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon vanilla 2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

Cream marg and sugar, add condensed milk, then dry ingredients. Mix well. Roll into small balls (slightly heaped tablespoon fulls) and place on baking tray. Press lightly with a fork to get the lines. Cut cherries into 1/4 's and press 1/4 on top of the cookie. Bake at 180 for 10 mins or light golden.
