Slice & Bake Cookies

Ok, last one for a while. I need to quit baking sweets. I was making up for lost time, but it's too much! (I may do something Halloween-y though, and oh yeah, a certain someone has a birthday next week...maybe I won't get to take a break after all...then it's Christmas too!...)

These were decent, but by far best straight out of the oven. I'm sure freezing would work well too. I refrigerated half the dough for a few days, and baked it a few days after the first. I like how you can customize the recipe yourself, and they give you a few different options in the book (but I think I'll leave their suggestions for you to find out).

This photo is from the cookbook:


(from WW "cupcakes cheesecakes cookies" recipe book)

250g butter, softened
1 1/4 cups icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup rice flour
1/2 cup cornflour
2 tbsp milk
mini M&M's

Beat butter, sifted icing sugar, and vanilla in small bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Stir in flours and M&M's, in two batches, then add the milk.

Divide the mixture in half. Wrap each log in baking paper; refrigerate about 1 hour or until firm.

Preheat oven to 160°C (140°C fan-forced) / 325°F. Line with trays baking paper.

Cut logs into 1cm slices and place on trays. Bake about 20 minutes. Cool on wire racks.

Rice flour? Corn flour? Are these things that you normally have in your pantry? Can regular flour be substituted? I think I want to try them cuz I have cream cheese in the fridge and have made too many cheesecakes lately!! (4 for 2 different family bbq's- sorry Adam wasn't here to enjoy!)

I'd say substituting would be fine. Or maybe buy a finer ground flour (like cake flour...?). The rice and corn flour are really fine. Or just use corn flour for both the rice and corn measurements...Mmm, I haven't had a cheesecake in AGES! I might make one for my b-day. I have a huge recipe book full of them :)
