biggrin.gif Just a quick warning - the dough is deadly!!! One mouthful and you'll never want to cook it  laughing2.gif !

Oh dear Lord. I have to vote this "The Most Dangerous Recipe of the Year".

-the dough is dangerous - one mouthful and you are hooked - this from someone who doesnt like to eat dough usually
-the smell will bring strangers knocking on your door
-all 120 will be devoured within a day or two
-the kids will all but kill each other to get the last one.

Ok heres a warning. I wanted to finally make these cookies yesterday with DS and thought I had all ingredients. Turns out I didnt, I didnt have condensed milk or butter.
Lets just say, dont substitute the ingredients ppl!!! It was not pretty!!! LOL

I now have all ingredients and will try and make them again soon wink.gif

I agree, the whole process of making these bikkies is dangerous wink.gif

Posted 27 June 2007 - 03:07 PM

just what I've been looking for - a recipe that cooks more than 24 at a time without massively tripling it to get more lol

mmm no cond milk methinks... have to check
but got everything else (planned on making muesli bars for the kiddies with the oats but these look like fun  tongue.gif )


eta ahah!  We normally always have cond milk in the cupboard to make choc balls it's the milk Arrowroot bisc we always run short of! lol  mmmm yay!

1st batch has just come out of the oven & the 2nd batch is baking nicely...but they had better hurry, the first batch is disappearing pretty quickly  blush.gif  blush.gif  blush.gif

Life as we know it will never be the same  tongue.gif  tongue.gif

Kristy..you have got to get some cond milk & start baking, speaking of baking  bbabyflip.gif  unsure.gif  unsure.gif  unsure.gif

huh Lush?  tongue.gif   does the smileys mean Contractions? Nah, too early so nope! Don't mind me  laughing2.gif

ps I got the cond milk I just don't have the M/Arrowroot biscuits (which is not for this recipe but is what I don't have instead of cond milk lol)

aw cmawwwwwwwwwwwn!~ cry1.gif  laughing2.gif

I have everything in the bowl ready to open the cond milk ...
and NO can opener!!! FGnessSake!!!  tongue.gif
(we went camping... might check camping box)...

#14 Prizzy

Posted 27 June 2007 - 03:43 PM

Thanks for that. Can I freeze some? Anyone tried it? 120 biscuits would probably last us a few months, lol.

#15 KristyMum-

Posted 27 June 2007 - 04:01 PM

in the event of an AWOL can opener...

well that's what Swiss Army knives are for lol - dug the one out of the glovebox in the car, cond milk in, dough made (yes tastes lovely!) and ready for oven before pickup (first batch anyway)

Karicarent I dunno about this one but I freeze pretty much all biscuit recipes, I'm sure you can and as a recipe in here it would make sense wink.gif I reckon yes, but I'm sure someone will let you know for sure

When I make these cookies I divide the dough into 4 and roll it into "logs" and freeze 3 of them, then you can just cut it into cookie next time you want to make more. (Otherwise you will end up eating way too many of them grin.gif )

#17 samialima

Posted 27 June 2007 - 07:50 PM

At 120 cookies how many batches/trips to the oven does it usually make?

Has anyone tried to halved the recipe to make less?

#18 Midwitch

Posted 28 June 2007 - 07:59 AM

Hey Kristy, can I have your choc balls recipe pretty please?  wub.gif

I made the full recipe but next time I'll freeze half of it I think.  I made mine a bit larger than average I guess - they turned out to be about the size of a 10 yr olds palm, and I only got 80 out of them. That said, two is enough to fill the average child.

Thanks everyone I'm going to give these a go today or tomorrow as our Anzacs have nearly run out.

Posted 28 June 2007 - 11:06 AM

Is this the sort of cookie recipe that is you need to put in the fridge for an hour before cooking?

#21 ~*Bubsy*~

Posted 28 June 2007 - 05:15 PM

Uhoh, what have I started!!!! LOL

Jezsar, nope no need for any of that, just make and bake, so easy and simple. I just made another batch original.gif

I also love the Pom Poms (choc balls), Ill try and dig out my recipe and post it original.gif

Enjoy your bikkies everyone wink.gif hehehehehe

Poms Poms
makes 24

250g packet Milk Arrowroot
2 Tablespoons cocoa, sifted
400g can condensed milk
2 cup dessicated coconut

1. Crush the biscuits. Combine with the sifted Cocoa and condensed milk in a bowl. Mix together well, until thoroughly combined. Refrigerate for about 20 mins, then roll the mixture into balls with your hands and roll in coconut. Refrigerate until set, then store in an airtight container.
HINT: You can easily crush the biscuits in a bag with a rolling pin or use a food processor.

These two other recipes are tried and tested and they are pretty easy to make. The Orange and Poppyseed cake is absolutely divine!!!! And the Muesli bars are addictive too!!

Choc Chip Muesli Bars
2 cups of Rice Bubbles
1 cup of Rolled Oats
1/2 cup toasted flaked almonds (I usually skipped this one)
1/2 cup of coconut
1/2 cup of chopped dried apricots
1 cup of sultanas
1 tbsp Nestle Baking Cocoa
1 cup Nestle dark or milk Choc Bits
60g of butter
1/2 cup of honey
2 tbsp glucose (I got the sachets and mixed them)
1/2 cup of extra Nestle Choc Bits

Combine first 8 ingredients.
Place butter, honey and glucose in pan, stir over low heat until butter has melted (I did this in the microwave)
Add to dry ingredients, mix well.
Press mixture into a foil lined tin (I used a roasting tin)
Press extra Choc Bits onto top of mixture, cover and refrigerate until firm.
Cut into slices or bars to serve, wrap and keep refrigerated.
(I wrapped mine individually in alfoil and kept them in the fridge and the kids just grabbed one for school each morning)

Orange and Poppyseed Cake
1 1/2 Cups of S/R Flour, sifted
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 eggs, at room temperature
1 egg yolk
1/2 cup of milk
185g of butter, softened
3 teaspoons finely grated orange rind
40g Poppyseeds
1 cup pure icing sugar, sifted
1 teaspoon softened butter
1 to 11/2 tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Grease and line a 20cm (base) round cake tin.
Combine flour, sugar, eggs, egg yolk, milk, butter, orange rind, poppyseeds and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat on medium speed for 6 mins or until thick.
Pour batter into cake pan and smooth surface. Bake for 50 to 60 mins or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Stand cake in pan for 5 mins. Turn onto wire rack to cool completely.
Make Icing
Combine icing sugar, butter and enough milk to make a thick icing. Spread over top of cake. Allow to set before serving.

There ya go original.gif Enjoy wink.gif

Oh the Pom Poms don't look too bad for you do they? blush.gif

Made a batch of the cookies this arvo. Had to halve the recipe as I only had 250g butter. They were a winner till DD1 discovered a sultana  blink.gif but hopefully I convinced her it was chocolate and she finished it laughing2.gif . Lets hope she'll eat it tomorrow. She's going to love the Pom Poms. wub.gif

Posted 28 June 2007 - 08:56 PM

I've got everything but the cond milk, it's not something I ever buy so I forgot  sad.gif

Can someone take a piccie, I'm curious to what they look like  tongue.gif

#25 KristyMum-

Posted 29 June 2007 - 12:41 AM

Midwitch the choc balls recipe that Bubsy posted is the same as mine
if you want to be a little naughty...  wink.gif
you can put a Malteser in the centre of each one
or a hazelnut or a Jaffa (do they still make those? lol)
etc you get the idea
you can also roll them in drinking chocolate and or Milo instead of rolling in coconut if you like

dev (6).gif

I have a friend's recipe for easy shortbread type biscuits that knocks up a fair amount - I usually add choc chips or sprinkle w brown sugar - they freeze really well.
I bought myself a good recipe journal from BH&G ages ago and am finally filling it all in - thoroughly enjoying putting all my favourites in it.
and DH found a great new recipe for cauliflower cheese the other night lol
can you tell we both enjoy cooking!  biggrin.gif
