Kids Cooking Thursday: Sultana Spice Cookies

A variant on the $4 Biscuits we made last year, which didn't cost me anything, because I had all the ingredients either in the freezer or pantry. Nothing like knocking up a quick batch of biscuits to keep them quiet during the school holidays! As usual, if you don't have speculaas kruiden, you can substitute Dutch cinnamon, but do try your local international deli, because it makes a world of difference!

Sultana Spice Cookies
500g butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 can condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
4 cups SR flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp speculaas kruiden (or cinnamon)
1 1/2 cup sultanas

Beat butter + sugar 'til creamy.
Beat in condensed milk.
Add in essence.
Mix in flour, spice and sultanas until all doughy and combined.
Shape into Tbsp sized balls
Bake for 12 mins @ 180°C. Cool on a wire rack.
