  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ cup powdered sugar (for dusting)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


Cream Together: In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, cream together the softened butter and sweetened condensed milk until light and fluffy.

Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour and baking powder.

Combine Wet and Dry: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. A dough will form. The dough might be slightly sticky, but resist adding more flour unless absolutely necessary.

Optional Nuts: If you’re using chopped walnuts, gently fold them into the cookie dough at this stage.

Shape the Dough: Using a spoon or cookie scoop, portion the dough into small, rounded balls. Aim for about 1 tablespoon of dough per cookie.

Roll in Powdered Sugar: Place the powdered sugar in a shallow bowl or plate. Gently roll each cookie dough ball in the powdered sugar to coat it completely. Shake off any excess powder.

Bake the Cookies: Preheat your oven to 320°F (160°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the powdered sugar-coated cookie dough balls on the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between them for spreading.

Golden Goodness: Bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden brown. The centers should be soft and slightly cracked.

Cool and Enjoy: Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. The cookies will firm up as they cool.

Dust Again (Optional): Once cool, you can gently roll the cookies again in powdered sugar for an extra dusting.
