Sante Biscuits (Choc Chip Cookies)

IMG_2141

I was chatting with a girlfriend of mine recently about sweets & baking, when she told me about an amazing recipe for choc chip cookies.  She’d come across them on ‘Rebecca Judd Loves’ website (yes, Juddy’s wife).   I promised my girlfriend I would look up the recipe & make them in my Thermomix.  I’m so glad I did, because not only are these very easy to make, they are AMAZING!  The cookies are lovely & crunchy.  The condensed milk & coconut really make these cookies very moorish!  On her website, Rebecca explained that this recipe is from ‘Edmond’s Cookbook’, which is very well known in New Zealand & are also known as ‘Sante Biscuits’.

Ingredients:
125g butter, softened
50g brown sugar
50g sweetened condensed milk
5g vanilla extract
125g plain flour
85g desiccated coconut
1 tsp baking powder
170g choc chips

Method:
1) Pre heat oven to 160 degrees C (fan forced).
2) Place butter, sugar, condensed milk & vanilla in TM bowl, mix 20 seconds/speed 4. (If the butter is cold from the fridge, place in TM bowl first & soften for 1 minute/50 degrees/speed 1 – then follow the remainder of step 2).
3) Add flour, coconut, & baking powder. Mix 8 seconds/speed 4. Scrape down sides of bowl & repeat 8 seconds/speed 4.
4) Add choc chips, mix 10 seconds/reverse/speed 2.5
5) Roll into balls & flatten with a fork onto greased or lined baking trays.
6) Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Notes:
I use an old fashioned ice cream scoop to portion my cookie dough.  This ensures the cookies are all the same size & cook evenly.   Just take care towards the bottom of the TM bowl that you don’t scrape it.  I have 3 different sizes of ice cream scoops that I also use for making cupcakes too.

I never like to waste food, so given I only needed a small amount of condensed milk, I’ve frozen the rest in 50ml portions to make these cookies again.
