Here is our favorite new cookie recipe from New Zealand. These cookies are light and reminiscent of shortbread but better! This recipe comes from the kitchen of Megan Carmichael, Whitianga, New Zealand.
Combine butter and sugar until creamy. Add milk, and stir. Add baking powder and flour and combine until just mixed. Add chocolate chips and mix all together. Roll dough into balls (golfball size or smaller) and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Press down with fork tines. Bake in a moderate over at 350 and remove when the bottoms become golden brown. Makes approximately 14-16 cookies.
*In New Zealand, chocolate chips are more like tiny bits of chocolate, much smaller than the American formed 'chip'. If using this recipe with standard chips, chop them up before using. Also, chips can be substituted with raisins or half & half of each.
