Condensed milk cookies
A major point about the 100 cookie recipe is that it is based around a tin of condensed milk. You don't have to make 100 cookies if you don't want to - the batch can be scaled down to make less. But then you end up with half a tin of condensed milk kicking around the fridge.
The condensed milk makes the cookies milky sweet and oh so chewy.
Condensed milk cookies are ideal when you need a big batch bake for the school fair or a kids party. The dough is however freezer friendly so you can also just bake what you need and keep the rest for next time.
