Hello everybody! I'm new to Cake Central. I've been reading the wealth of information here and thought I would get involved.

Does anyone have a recipe for cut out cookies made with sweetened condensed milk? I'm experimenting because of the high altitude that I live in.

Thanks so much!

I have that, make it all the time and love it. I use it for my cookie bouquets. Here it is:

3 1/2 cups unsifted flour
2 teas baking powder
1/4teas salt
1 14 oz can of sweetned condensed milk
3/4 cup (1/12 sticks) butter softned
2 eggs
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract or 2 teaspoons of almond extract

Combine flour, baking powder and salt. With mixer on low speed, beat sweetned condensed milk, butter, eggs and vanilla in large bowl until mixed. Beat at medium speed for 1 minute. Add flour mixture and beat on low speed until combined. (if using portable mixer, use wooden spoon to add the last of the flour)

Divide dough into thirds. Wrap and chill dough about 2 hours or until easy to handle.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees for about 9-11 minutes. On lightly floured surface, roll out dough, one portion at a time, to 1/8-inch thick, cut with floured cookie cutter.
Reroll as necessary to use all dough. place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Store loosely covered at room temp. decorate as desired.

Southernbelle, it's sounds good! Is that the recipe you used for the valentine cookie bouquet picture you posted? They look great!

Yes it is. I like the taste of these cookies better and they are a little softer than the no-fail cookies. Although, I have made the no-fail cookies and like them as well. Just a preference icon_smile.gif
