What is it with boys? They are always hungry. The first thing I am met at the school gate is not "How's your day been Mum?" It is "Have you got anything for us to eat?" It is like my coat pockets should be filled with tasty treats. Well today they were in for a tasty treat when they came home. Some homemade chocolate chip cookies and a glass (or should I say miniature milk bottle) of Cravendale milk.
The cookies are really simple to make and went down a treat.
You will need:
100g caster sugar
100g soft brown sugar
225g self raising flour
1 chocolate bar (120g) cut up into small chunks
Preheat the oven to 180C.
Mix all the ingredients above together. Roll the mixture into a long sausage shape and cut into equal widths. Spread out on a baking sheet. Space them well as they will get big! Then bake for 7-10 minutes. Allow to cool.
A simple recipe. But sometimes simple things are the best. The best accompaniment for a cookie has got to be a glass of Cravendale. Pure and fresh it is milk at it's best. The boys love the taste and I like that it will keep them happy and quiet for a few minutes while they drink it. Or until little man is asking for more milk.
But why else do I like Cravendale? I like it because it has a long use by date. If we are away for the weekend or away on holiday for a week, I can grab a bottle before hand and leave it in the fridge so we have fresh milk when we return.
What do you like about Cravendale?
