Confetti cookie's & Candy cane cookie's

Cookie's are such a fun activity at this time of year to make with your children or even for gift's for family and friends that drop by. Today I am going to give you a very simple and easy cookie base recipe that has only 4 ingredients that you can add any of your favourite combination's of flavouring's to. This recipe will also make approx. 100 cookie's (depending on how big you make them) for around $5  in Australia. But today I am going to show you how to make them into confetti cookie's and candy cane cookie's.








Base cookie dough ingredients:

500 grams of butter (softened)

1 cup of sugar

1 395 gram can of condensed milk

5 cups of  self raising flour



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Steps:

1. Cream butter and sugar either with a mixer or a spatula.





2. Add your can of condensed milk and stir through.

3. Then mix in you 5 cups of flour. I add mine 1 cup at a time and mix through.





4. Add whatever flavouring combination you like and roll approx. 1 tablespoon of mixture into a ball and place on your greased baking tray.

5. bake in moderate oven until golden brown.

For the confetti cookie's:

I portion out how much of the cookie dough mixture that I want to make up and then add about a 1/4 cup of sprinkles and mix through. ( If you are making the whole batch up as these you may need to add more sprinkles).

Then bake as above in recipe steps.

For the candy cane cookie's:

In these cookie's I used 5 candy canes and crushed them. I then mixed about half that through  a small portion of the cookie dough and then sprinkled the other half on top. Then bake them as the above base recipe.
