Condensed Milk Cookies are a brilliant quick and easy basic biscuit recipe.

With this Condensed Milk Cookies recipe you can add fruit, chocolate chips, sprinkles.  If you like the idea of marbled Condensed Milk Cookies, you could halve the mixture and add a little cocoa powder to one half and then knead the mixture back together. Roll out and then cut into shapes and you’ll have a wonderful vanilla/chocolate marbled cookie.

Keep a batch of this dough in the fridge tightly wrapped in cling wrap.  Then anytime you need a few Condensed Milk Cookies, you can simply grab out a chunk, roll and bake.

This dough consistency is great for cutting into shapes and look bright and fun with 100s and 1000s or sprinkles.

Our favourite condensed milk for this recipe is Nestle Condensed Milk – a staple that’s always worth keeping in the pantry.
