Condensed Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today I’d like you to meet my blog’s new home!

What do you think?

It still has the same Recipe Index and Baking Conversions pages, all the recipes have moved over here, you can still read all about me, and if you follow, I’m happy to say I haven’t lost any of you!

But it took work.

Hours and hours of me asking annoying question after annoying question and nagging my amazingly talented girlfriend.

Import after import of the blog because it kept failing.

Redesign after redesign of the logo and header placement.

And edit after edit of CSS. Don’t even go there. The concept is completely foreign to me, I still don’t even really know what it is. Who am I kidding, I still have NO idea what it is. If it wasn’t for my friend, none of this, NONE of this, would have been possible.

If it was not for her, I would have slammed my Mac shut, flung it across the room and called it a day.

So thank you Tammy. For working with me. For answering all my questions. For fixing all the niggles. And for making this what it is. I love it.

She even hand drew the Recipe Index butter dish. Isn’t she awesome?

So to make the world a better place and introduce the new Butter Baking in the most appropriate manner, I baked you some cookies.

But these aren’t any ordinary chocolate chip cookies.

They have condensed milk in them. Instead of eggs.

They sort of blew my mind. If you crossed a chewy cookie with shortbread, this is what you would get.

Yum. Hope you love them, and my new home!

Adapted from Nestle.

180g unsalted butter, softened (2/3 cup)
1/3 cup caster (superfine) sugar
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
Pinch salt
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 180 C (350 F) and line a few trays with baking paper.

Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the condensed milk until well incorporated.

Add flour and salt, and mix on a low speed until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Roll tablespoons of the dough into balls, place on the lined trays and flatten with your hand.

Bake for 10 – 15 minutes, until golden. Makes 48 cookies.

Happy baking!

    Glad you hung in there and will still have your blog. Thank you to Tammy for helping you and the butter dish is perfect. All of your recipes sound so delicious and I did make the healthy double chocolate muffins. They were delicious. I hope to try some of the other ones too. Your pictures make me want to reach right into the monitor.

    • Thanks Diane! Of course I will still have my blog :-) all thanks to Tammy, yes!
      I’m glad to hear you made the muffins and that you liked them! Hope you like the other recipes too :-)
      Haha my pictures make me want to reach into the monitor too… because those cookies are all gone!

  12. Congratulations on a gorgeous blog. My Physio, Olivia put me on to this.
    It’s just Beautiful — an inspiration for my blog!

  13. Hi Natasha,
    As I have only found your lovely blog today I cannot comment on the change but I sure like the look of it.
    As to the cookies, well funnily enough I bought some condensed milk on my last shopping trip, SO these are most certainly going to be baked over the weekend!
    It’s been lovely touring around your blog and I will try to get back often to see what you’re up to.
    Have a great weekend. Linda

    • Hi! Thank you Linda, that’s so kind of you!
      Haha it sounds like the condensed milk was fate 😉 I hope you enjoyed the cookies, and I’m so happy to hear you like the blog!
      Have a nice week :-)

  14. I love your new look! It’s beautiful! These cookies look like a perfect way to celebrate! :)

  15. It’s after midnight now and I’m so tired, otherwise I would be in the kitchen baking these cute beauties :)

  16. Lovely blog! It’s very clean, beautiful and accessible. Congratulations! And this is the first I’ve heard of condensed milk in a cookie, definitely gonna give these a try. :)

  17. Those photos (and your blog) are gorgeous! Both you and your friend deserve those cookies, yum!


  18. Congrats on having the new blog up and rolling! That’s huge. :)
    You have some gorgeous photos in this post, and hello, I’m in LOVE with your dog. Seriously the definition of puppy eyes right there!
    P.S. I haven’t been getting my normal subscription e-mails since you moved over either, so I resubscribed, but just wanted to let you know!

    • Thanks so much! You’re so kind! :-) Haha she is pretty gorgeous, huh?!
      P.S. Oh no!! That’s a huge bummer. Thanks for letting me know though, I’ll check in with WordPress and see what I can do. Happy to still have you following along! :-)

    I’m glad to see the newly published website up! I’ve never heard of adding condensed milk in cookies and will definitely try! Love your photos and blog! :) Have a great weekend!

    I’m glad to see the new website up and running smoothly! I’ve never heard of condensed milk in cookies and will definitely try! Love your photos and blog! Have a great weekend!

  21. Just made a batch of these cookies. Look great – still too hot to eat though. I only managed to get 26 cookies out of the batter and they certainly don’t look any bigger than in the pics. Has anyone else found this?

  22. Ellimac on March 20, 2013 at 8:51 am said:

    I found that my cookies looked nothing like the cookies in the pic. Tasted good though.

  23. After making 3 batches within a space of 10 days, have decided not to waste my time and make a minimum of DOUBLE batches from now on. 😀 It then uses up a whole tin of condensed milk (so nothing hanging around in the fridge), and I can keep daughter quiet for just that little bit longer. 😀 😀

  24. Oh my goodness!!! These cookies were soo good!! Little bites of absolute yumminess in every bite!! And perfectly chewy!! Thanks

  27. What a truly beautiful blog. Thanks for sharing all the amazing recipes – and those photos.

    I do wonder if you or anyone else has tried white chocolate in the cookies – or what that be too much ?

    And I have to comment too … cute pup!

    • Hi Toni! Thank you so much for the kind words :-)
      I’m sure you could mix anything into these, not just chocolate!
      Haha and thanks, she’s pretty gorgeous!

      • Hi Natasha, Thanks for your reply. I was looking for a recipe to use up bits & pieces of things in the pantry as we don’t bake anymore :( . I made the cookies today with the white chocolate in lieu of the milk chocolate bits. You may not want to read that as I didn’t have enough of the white chocolate I added macadamia nuts to make up the difference! They are lovely. They will be very well received at work tomorrow during morning tea. Thanks for sharing & taking the time to write this gorgeous blog.

  28. I made these and added in coconut, dash of vanilla. They are a little dry, but that could be due to the coconut, I did add more condensed milk, but possibly not enough to keep them moist. The taste is delish, and they are a perfect tea cookie!

  29. Madeleine on February 16, 2014 at 9:11 am said:

    These are officially now my favourite! Have made them 3 times and couldn’t go back! Thank you :)

  30. Valeria on March 25, 2014 at 3:16 pm said:

    Hi, I have a question.
    What if I don’t have self raising flour?

  31. HI Natasha, i tried this recipe, but the cookies i made just flat, was not look like your cookies, i followed all the instructions and the ingredients but i think my cookies are failed, i don’t know why :(((

  32. Hayley on June 2, 2014 at 3:52 pm said:

    I’ve been making condensed milk chocolate chip cookies for years and years maybe it is a New Zealand thing they r the best cookies by far! The recipe is in my Edmonds Cook book. Which is the biggest selling cook book in NZ. My mother used to make them. I have found making them with real chocolate the best rather then chocolate chips just chop up the block of chocolate and add how much it says. Then u have the best chocolate buy a block of your fav and add.

  33. Kasey on July 29, 2014 at 3:06 am said:

    Hi there! Amazing blog btw! Just wondering if I should refrigerate the dough before baking and if so, for how long? Would love to know and hear back from you! Thankyou :)

  34. Tricia on August 11, 2014 at 1:30 am said:

    My Grandmother made these cookies and froze them.. Oh that the green tupperware bowl was such a wonderful thing.. I am going to make these today!!

  37. Have you confused one tablespoon for one teaspoon? As this has only made 22 cookies. Can’t wait to try them though. Thanks for the recipe

    • Hi Pheobe! No I haven’t confused them. A tablespoon is not that big! It’s only 15ml (or 1/2 fl. oz.). So mine made 48. Maybe your spoonfuls were bigger?

  38. Hello, I am new here. I made these yesterday. It was so delicious! I’ll make sure to stick around for more of these scrumptious recipes. Thanks!

    Cookies look amazing. Using condensed milk, are these cookies super sweet?

  40. This is the first time I’ve come across chocolate chip cookies that used condensed milk in the dough. Since your recipe doesn’t require eggs and uses a relatively small amount of sugar (as compared to the usual chocolate chip cookies needing eggs), approximately how many eggs and how much sugar were replaced by the condensed milk? And will this recipe still work if I use brown sugar rather than caster sugar?

    • Hi Annie! Yes it’s something different, isn’t it? I have no idea how much sugar and how many eggs were replaced with condensed milk in this recipe, as I didn’t adapt the recipe from a “normal” cookie recipe, I just came across it as is. I have plenty of other recipes on the blog for chocolate chip cookies that use eggs and sugar though. If you use brown sugar, your cookies will probably be darker, chewier, flatter and possibly crisper around the edges.

    Thank you for this recipe! I used to have a condensed milk chocolate chip cookie recipe, but accidentally chucked it in the bin. I’d been mourning ever since, so thank you, thank you, thank you!

  42. Shauna Lee on May 8, 2016 at 12:34 am said:

    Meu Deus no ceu!! I just made these to take to my anatomy class…not sure how many will actually make it haha. I have tried so many chocolate chip recipes and always end up with either too flat or cakey cookies which were really ugly. Then i stumbled upon this gem of a website…so cute. My cookies are perfect, and adorable, and my diet attempt is ruined once again lol.
    Thank you so much for this recipe =]
    & much love from Brasil
