The thing about moving house is there are a whole lot of new things that you have to get used to. Such as the oven.
I love baking. Firstly because its a cheap and cheerful way to feed my tribe, and secondly, it's something I do when I'm agitated. You can measure just how agitated by the amount of baked goods I produce. At times there is more then can be consumed in a week, and it will end up in the freezer.
Since moving to this new house, I have baked the 120 cookies for $5 five times. Today was the first time I have successfully not burnt a batch! And as I bake to relieve agitation, the burning of said cookies was not agitation relieving at all. Instead, it caused a whole lot of stupid-motherfucking-oven curses.
So let the record show, that today, I mastered the oven and did not burn the cookies.
And just in case you want the recipe -
500 grams of butter or margarine
1 can of condensed milk
5 cups of plain flour
1 cup of white sugar
Cream butter/margarine and sugar until pale yellow
Add sifted flour and condensed milk
Add choc chips, 100s and 1000s, cornflakes, sultanas, rice bubbles, crushed nuts. I usually half the mix and make up two batches of two different types. You can also make jam drops with the plain mixture.
Place a teaspoons of mixture rolled into a ball and then flattened on baking paper lined tray, and bake in 180 degree Celsius oven until golden brown.
I freeze half of this mixture.
