Don't say you weren't warned. I need some cookies tomorrow as some of the Gumnuts are coming to help layer and pin the quilts for the family of five. And I also need cookies for Wednesday when we have an Aussie Heroes sewing day. Plus it is good to have a little something to put in the boys' lunch boxes.
And sooooo yummy!
To save you going on a blog hop to find it here is the recipe. Now this recipe is officially called 120 Cookies but I don't like that name so I want to give it another name - any suggestions?
Condensed Milk Cookies/Yummy Scrummy Cookies/Heavenly Cookies/Best Ever Cookies
Hmmm, the name needs more thought but the recipe doesn't!
500g butter or margarine
1 tin of condensed milk
1 cup caster sugar
5 cups of flour
Cream sugar and butter. Add condensed milk and flour. Roll into teaspoon sized balls and press down with a fork. (I used my trusty small ice cream scoop and didn't flatten the cookies). Place on greased or papered trays and bake in a moderate oven, around 180C, until golden brown - approximately 15 minutes.
For a less floury cookies substitute half a cup of flour for half a cup of custard powder - oooh that sounds yummy. I might have to do that next time!
Now Cherry Red Sewing today - pout - plenty of sewing just no Cherry Red sewing. It is a busy time for Aussie Heroes as we have just 14 more days to get quilts in the mail to Afghanistan and we have been asked to send some quilt to the hospital in Kandahar to be given to wounded soldiers who are transiting through on their way to military hospitals in Germany. I am also organising quilts for the five chaplains who are distributing the quilts we are sending and also for a new team of Psych's who have arrived.
Today I managed to finish one quilt for another special soldier (can't say any more just yet), and finished off a pretty pink and blue girly one - I also sewed the new April BOM.
I haven't even had much time to play with Snickers - she is doing her best to make me feel guilty
And I keep getting these quizzical looks from Maisy too!
But right now, there is a pile of laundry waiting to be folded - oh the joy!
Tomorrow I will be layering quilts for the family of five with the other Gumnuts and then quilting at least one of them so photos tomorrow night.
Till next time..............happy stitching!
