I’ve always loved cookies…

And I know I’ve shared this recipe for condensed milk cookies with you a while ago.

These cookies are great for any party and even Valentine’s day, which is less than a month away.

But today is a special day.

My friend and food blogger Meggan from Culinary Hill had a gorgeous baby girl on Friday!

I’m so happy for her family wish them love, luck and happiness!


With her creative recipes, Meggan’s blog is fun to read. She is so sweet and I feel lucky to know her.

In honor of Meggan and her new baby girl, some of her blogging friends and I are throwing her a virtual baby shower.

Joining me for the baby shower are:

Janette from Culinary Ginger – Vanilla Cupcakes With Orange Frosting

Nagi from Recipe Tin EatsClassic Lamingtons

Kathleen from Hapa Nom Nom – Fortune Cookies

 Maggie from Omnivore’s Cookbook – Healthy Green Curry Mac and Cheese

 Allie from Baking A Moment  – Persimmon Cheesecake

Helen from Scrummy Lane – Strawberry and Angel Cake Skewers With Chocolate Dipping Sauce.

Make sure you check their baby shower recipes out and of course head over to Culinary Hill to congratulate Meggan!

I decided to go with an old recipe, in fact, this is the most popular recipe on my blog right now.

I’ve been planning to repost the recipe with new, better looking pictures and the baby shower was the perfect excuse to do this.

And of course, cookies are always a great addition for any baby shower menu in my opinion.

These come together very quickly and the dough could be prepared days in advance.

This dough is a little soft and I prefer to chill it for at least 30 minutes (or overnight) before I roll the cookies out.

After rolling the dough into balls, I chilled the cookies for 1 more hour before baking.

This completely prevented spreading and this time I ended up with chunkier cookies or even cookie balls (I did not flatten them to keep the ball shape).

And since Meggan’s baby is a girl, I had to add pink sprinkles.

Just used Valentine’s Day sprinkles and thought these cookies would be great for Valentines Day, too.

To decorate them, you can use any sprinkles of your choice, roll them into chopped nuts or dip these condensed milk cookies in melted chocolate after they are baked.

These condensed milk cookies taste best if they are soft baked.

If you over bake them, they’ll get hard and will not taste as good.

They aren’t overly sweet, so if you like to make them sweeter, swap 1 tbsp flour with powdered sugar.

Make sure you store them in airtight container at room temperature.

Condensed Milk Cookies

By Lyubomira from CookingLSL
Soft baked sweetened condensed milk cookies with sprinkles. Perfect for a baby shower or Valentine’s Day.
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 8 minutes
Total: 18 minutes
Servings: 18



  • 1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup self rising flour
  • sprinkles to decorate


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, cream butter on medium speed for 3 minutes, until soft and fluffy.
  • Add condensed milk and beat on medium until incorporated.
  • Add in self-rising flour and mix until just incorporated. Do not over mix. This dough is dry and soft, but not crumby,
  • Gather dough into a ball and cover with plastic wrap. Chill for 30 minutes.
  • After you chill dough for 30 minutes, roll it into balls ( I used 1 Tbsp to measure balls with the same size) and then roll balls into sprinkles. Chill for 1 hour, to prevent spreading.
  • Preheat oven to 325 F (160 C). Lime baking sheet with parchment paper (or Silpat). Place cookies onto baking sheet, leaving 1.5 inch between them.
  • Bake cookies for 8 minutes for soft baked and 10 minutes for cookies that are more well done. (Outside of the cookies should be starting to set, but they should be soft to touch). Keep an eye on these, because they can easily burn. Baking times may vary.
  • Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.


Bake cookies 8 minutes for soft baked and 10 minutes for more well done.
Baking times may vary. Keep an eye on these.
The use of self rising flour is essential. To make self rising flour at home- place 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt in a measuring cup, then add all purpose flour to measure 1 cup.

  1. Yum! These cookies look amazing! I’ve never heard of using condensed milk in cookies before! I love that they stayed in little balls after they baked! Pinned!

  2. What a surprise when I saw this post Mira. As I did at Halloween, I decorated my candies/brigadeiros for Valentine’s with pink sprinkles. You can always decorate them for the occasion.

    Our recipe is a little bit different, Brigadeiros is a staple in Brazilian cuisine, but if there is condensed milk I know for sure this recipe is as good as brigadeiros.

  3. I liked this recipe…so easy and light tasting cookies. The second time I made them, I added 1/4t almond extract, and it gave them a bit more flavor. My family agreed that they liked the almond version better. Thanks for the fun and easy idea! I like that I can make several batches with my one can of sweetened condensed milk.

    1. Thanks Bree! Glad you liked the recipe! Will definitely try them with the almond extract, I’m sure they taste amazing!

  4. Recipe was very easy to follow, and these cookies are fantastic! I made a second batch using coconut oil in place of the butter. The slight coconut taste was a pleasant addition.

  5. I made these and they came out delicious. I ended up with a higher yield (I used ap flour with baking powder instead of self rising, easy substitute). They taste just like the little butter cookies we used to get on trays from the Italian bakery. (We always were given one when we went in). I added jimmies, non-pariels, mini chocolate chips, and halved glace cherries (fruitcake cherries) on top. They came out very good. Going to make several batches for our Christmas cookie exchange at church. (We make platters and bring them to nursing homes, police and fire stations, and homeless shelters)
