These are super easy to make, and you can wrap them up and leave them in the freezer for when unexpected visitors drop by, or you just feel like a cookie.
You Will Need…
Beat butter, icing sugar in small bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Transfer to large bowl. Stir in sifted flours in two batches then milk.Divide mixture in half. Knead each half on floured surface until smooth.
You can stop here if you want PLAIN freezer cookies. Just roll each half into logs, wrap in baking paper (and then glad wrap if you’re not using them then and there) and place in the freezer until firm.
If you want to add a bit of variation to your cookies, this is where you add some yummy bits.
You could add… walnuts, chocolate chips, cranberrys, nutmeg, cinnamon, mixed spice, apple, orange, lemon, pecans, peanut butter chips anything you want really.
Put your ingredients in when you are mixing in the flour if you want a big batch of the same cookies. Or, once the flour is mixed in, divide the mixture into 2 batches, and add your choc chips, nuts and knead in until all incorporated.
Roll into a log and place in the freezer. Same as you would with the plain cookies, until firm.
Preheat oven to 160 degrees celsius.
Using a sharp knife, cut the logs into about 1 cm slices.Place on a cookie tray lined with baking paper. Bake for 20 minutes.
Let them cool slightly on the cookie tray, then put them on a wire rack to cool completely.
