I may be a slow learner, but I finally caught on to the fact that using sweetened condensed milk in a recipe covers the duties of lots of ingredients. You gotta love recipes of no more than 4 ingredients that turn out GREAT. For instance...

3/4 c. pb,
1 can scm,
2 1/2 c. flour,
1 t. vnla,

Mix all ingredients. Roll into 1-in. balls. Shake in bag w/ gran. sugar. Flatten on cookie sheet by making a cris-cross pattern w/ fork. Bake @ 350 for 6-8 minutes. [At first I didn't like these. They looked like little biscuits and didn't flatten during baking. But DH said they're the best ever. SIL likes them w/ a choc. chip in the middle; also likes that they're bite size.



Posted by: chery2 on Sat, Nov 15, 03

1 bag or can of sweetened coconut [about 13 oz],
1 can scm,
1 t. van [careful! changes shade of cookies],

You can add other ingredients: baking chips, crushed mint, whatever. Recipe on back of coc. bag. Makes a ton of little ones. 350 for 8 minutes.
