These condensed milk biscuits are the perfect sweet treats for cold winter days; they are delicious with a cup of hot tea or coffee. It is a great recipe that takes less than 15 minutes to prepare; they need only about 10 in the oven; they can be made in advance, keep well, and so on. Only advantages!

Not to mention, they are eggless, so a good cookie recipe if you don’t want to use any eggs or just discovered you don’t have any in the fridge. And check out these Almond Cookies without Eggs as well. Baking powder is also not necessary.

You can also turn them vegan by using margarine instead of butter.

Recipe ingredients

The list of ingredients is super short.

  • Butter: I prefer to use unsalted butter in baking; it allows better control of the salt content. If you must use salted, leave the salt out of the recipe. But I do recommend unsalted or at least very lightly salted butter.
  • Sweetened condensed milk: You will only need ½ a can, which is 7 oz/ 200 g. See Expert tips for ideas of what to do with the leftover milk. The condensed milk makes the cookies moist and tender, imparting a delicious flavor and a beautiful creamy color.
  • Other ingredients: Granulated sugar, vanilla extract, all-purpose flour, and a pinch of salt.

How to make biscuits with condensed milk?

  • Make the biscuit dough: Cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl (1). Add condensed milk and vanilla essence to the butter mixture and mix well. Scrape the sides of the bowl (2).

  • Add flour and a little bit of salt and combine.

  • Shape dough: Turn it onto the working surface. Divide it in two and form two “sausages,” about 8 inches/ 20 cm long and about 1.5 inches/ 3.5 cm thick. Wrap them in plastic and refrigerate them for ½ to 1 hour.

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Cut the cookie dough into 0.5 inches/ 1 cm thick slices; you should have about 36 pieces. Flatten them very lightly and, if necessary, press the biscuits lightly around the edges to give them a nice round form. Place them on the lined baking sheets.
  • Bake the condensed milk biscuits in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes until they are lightly golden around the edges.
  • Leave on the baking tray for about 10 minutes; they will firm up. Transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Expert Tips

  • Always use a digital kitchen scale in baking; it ensures the best results (Amazon affiliate link). Flour and butter are tough to measure consistently, affecting the baking results.
  • You can simultaneously bake two baking trays full of biscuits in a fan-forced oven. In this case, set the oven temperature to 320°F/160°C.
  • Double the recipe if you like to make a big batch of cookies and use a whole can of sweetened condensed milk.

Recipe FAQ

What is sweetened condensed milk?

Very thick, very sweet milk sold in cans; the kind of milk you need if you want to make dulce de leche, for instance. Please don’t confuse it with evaporated milk, which is an entirely different product.

Can I make the recipe in advance?

Make the dough, form, and wrap the “sausages.” Refrigerate them for 4-5 days or freeze the dough for 2-3 months. You don’t have to defrost them completely before baking, just enough to be able to slice them. If they are not completely thawed, increase the baking time by a couple of minutes and check.

How to store?

Keep the condensed milk biscuits in an airtight container, cookie tin, or jar at room temperature. They will keep for about one week.
