100 Years of Sweet Baking Memories


P1040586 This recipe book was a freebie with three Nestle purchases from the banking range in Woolworths Supermarkets recently.  My plan it to bake them all! This book has all the oldies but goodies, and who doesn’t love a recipe that has Condensed Milk as one of it’s ingredients?

Yesterday I made two of the recipes.

Marshmallow Slice


It worked perfectly and tastes delicious!

White chocolate & Cranberry Cookies

2011-09-26 biscuits

I needed to add almost another cup of plain flour as the mixture was very wet, not sure if it was because I creamed the butter and brown sugar using my electric mixer or if it would have been wet regardless. First batch looked good, although I heaped up the mix in subsequent batches, once I saw they wouldn’t spread too much.  Nothing worse then cookies that turn into slices!!!

These are delicious too, the sweetness of the white chocolate balances beautifully with the tang of the cranberries….!

Now to eat a morsel of each while I drink a cup of peppermint tea!  BLISS!

Thanks for visiting,

I also purchased 3 Nestle products, only to be told that they had no books left, very disappointed.

Now you're making me hungry, Julie :-)) I think I might need to rummage in the cupboard for a tin of condensed milk. Delicious looking cookies!

How cruel! You didn't offer us a slice or a biscuit. And worse, you didn't share the recipes! Now I have to go bake something of my own, probably not nearly as delicious as your goodies. Peanut butter cookies, I think.
