Introducing the home baking hack taking the lunchbox prep world by storm… the famous 100 Cookie Recipe! Starting with a base of just 4 ingredients, you can divide the dough, customise the cookies with different flavours and toppings, and freeze the batches – just bake when needed! This recipe makes ‘homemade’ a breeze and it’s so easy, your kids can roll up their sleeves and help too.

Helpful hints: This recipe makes a lot of cookies, so use a very large bowl! Also, bringing the butter to room temperature before mixing in will making combining the dough easier.

How to…

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan bake) and grease and line baking trays with butter or cooking oil.

Step 2: Place the butter and sugar into a very large bowl. Using a hand- held beater or a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until pale, creamy, and fluffy (about 3-5 minutes).

Step 3: Add the sweetened condensed milk and continue beating until thoroughly combined.

Step 4: Add the flour, about 100 grams at a time, beating carefully between each addition.

Step 5: Add your flavours! This step is optional, but we highly recommend trying a few variations. Divide the dough between separate bowls, one for each flavour. Add your flavours and mix through gently with a spoon. If you’re freezing a portion of the mix, you can do it during this step.

Step 6: Roll into heaped teaspoon- sized balls and press down lightly with the back of a spoon. Place onto baking trays, leaving a 5cm gap between the cookies to allow for spreading, and bake each tray of cookies for 10 minutes.

To freeze: Roll dough into a sausage shape and wrap in cling film. When you’re ready to bake, just slice up the dough. Alternatively, form small balls with the dough, freeze on a tray, the place the balls in a ziplock bag. Freeze for up to three months.
