Sweetened Condensed Milk Cookies

These cookies are sweet, soft and simple.  The secret ingredient is sweetened condensed milk.  You are going  to love them!

     If you like soft simple cookies, these are for you!  The sweetened condensed milk is a different variation.  These cookies are cute and easy.  Just be patient, they take two trips to the fridge to chill.  You can bake them as ball, or roll and cut them.  They are really cute covered in sprinkles!

     MiMi made these for two celebrations. She decorated some for the big game and the rest for Valentine's Day.  They were a hit for both! 

     These cookies turn out great.  They have a nice chew and aren't too sweet. They are just simple and delicious! What occasion will you make them for?

  1. Cool! These look easy enough to make with my kids for valentine's day. I would probably use almond milk, though. Would that work? Thanks for sharing. I'm stopping by from the Link and Mingle blog hop on Manner of Happiness :)

    1. You may have to add a bit of sugar and flour, because sweetened condensed milk is so thick and sweet. But, I don't see why it couldn't work! Or maybe you could condense the almond milk some by cooking it down? It would be fun to experiment!

  2. These would make the perfect Valentine's gift for my co-workers! They look so yummy! Thanks so much for sharing at Talented Tuesdays!

    1. They are really good. It is fun to change things up every once in a while!

  3. Your cookies look delicious! Thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and come back soon!

  4. I just made these cookies and they are really terriible tasting. 41/2 tsp baking powder and 11/2 tsp salt is excessive.

    1. I am sorry you had that experience, nothing is worse than being excited about a batch of cookies and having them not work out. This recipe worked for us, but out of curiosity I just did a quick search online to see what other people do and there is a wide range of ratios of flour to baking powder and salt in sweetened condensed milk cookies. Hopefully your next experience will be better.
