Do you have caster sugar, self-raising flour and a tin of condensed milk lying around the house?
Well, then grab it all – you’ve got all the ingredients needed to make dessert for the whole of next week (depending on how many you can eat in one sitting of course).
An Instagram baker has shown how you can create 100 cookies out of just four humble ingredients, and the treats don’t even take that long to throw together.
Australian food blogger Bake Play Smile shared the recipe on their blog showing how you can make the biscuits in less than half an hour.
And you can decorate the cookies with whatever flavours you like, freezing the rest of the dough for whenever your heart desires.
Here’s how to make them…
