  • 1 cup butter softened.
  • ½ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups all-purpose or cake flour
  • ½ Tablespoon baking powder


  • Beat the butter well for about 3 minutes until light and creamy. Add the condensed milk and beat for a further 2 minutes until combined. SEE NOTE 1
  • Sift in the flour and baking powder. Mix until just combined. SEE NOTE 2
  • Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to scoop out the dough into even portions onto a lined baking sheet. Place the shaped cookies at least 2 inches ( 5cm) apart on the baking sheet. This will allow it enough space to spread.
  • Gently press the tops, to flatten slightly.
  • Bake at 320°F ( 160°C) for between 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown and baked.
  • Remove from the oven and leave on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
