Cookie season is here! That means baking lots and lots of cookies. I like cookies that have just a few ingredients and are very easy to make. These Condensed milk cookies just fill the bill. Super cute, easy to make but also versatile. The dough is sweet with a slight hint of vanilla, it is like the perfect canvas to any flavor combinations you might want to try.

Helpful Tips and Tricks
This is a very delicate and soft dough, make sure you refrigerate the dough for at least minutes. I like to work in batches, cut the dough in half and keep the other half in the refrigerator until ready to use.
These cookies are delicious just like this, but you can also add flavor to the cookie dough with orange peel, or almond extract. You can also roll them in cinnamon sugar while they are still hot, they are so delicious this way too.
Condensed Milk Cookies
- 4 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 ¾ cup of butter, room temperature
- 1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
- In a mixer, add the butter and beat until fluffy. Add the condensed milk, vanilla extract and salt and beat until well incorporated. Add the flour in batches beating well after each addition. Transfer the cookie dough to a lightly floured surface and for into a disk. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lined a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Divide the dough in two parts. Keep one half in the refrigerator until ready to use.
- Roll the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, no bigger than ½” thick. Cut the cookies out in desire shape (I used a 2 ½” cookie cutter) and transfer the cookies to prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or until the edges of the cookies start to brown. Roll the remaining dough to cut out more cookies.
- Repeat the process with the dough chilling in the refrigerator.
- Transfer to a cooling rack and let the cookies cool completely. Springle the cookies with powder sugar once cooled.
