For quite some time, I’d been looking around for milk cookie recipes. I wanted to re-create those cookies from my childhood that I would dip into a cup of coffee or tea, and then enjoy the sensation of those coffee-soaked cookies melting in my mouth.
I finally found a recipe somewhere online and I ammended it a little to give it a milkier flavour. The cookies turned out pretty good, although they were larger than the cookies from my childhood, and will take more than just one dip in coffee to melt them.
Here’s how you can make some too!
