Another small batch baking recipe from <<每天都是饼干日>>. Something for the little ones during the Chinese New Year.
My kids love dipping their (clean!) fingers into a jar of condensed milk as an occasional “splurging sweet treat” , so it was no surprise that they love these cookies sweetened entirely with condensed milk only.
This cookie cutter will make the cookies look even nicer.
Recipe for Condensed Milk Marble Cookies – adapted from <<每天都是饼干日>>recipe book
Yields 20 cookies, depending on the size of cookie cutter
60g unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
100g condensed milk, room temperature

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 tbsp Cocoa powder **1
In the small mixing bowl, whisk to cream softened butter. (Pic Below)
Add condensed milk and salt. Whisk to combine.

Pour sifted flour into the mixture, stir with metal teaspoon to form dough ball. (Pic Below)
Pinch out 50g of the dough, add cocoa powder slowly to it to form a cocoa dough. Stop adding when the dough starts to feel dry. (Pic Below)
Roll out the plain dough on a floured surface or baking paper. tear up cocoa dough into pieces randomly place them on top of the flatten plain dough.

Bake in a preheated oven at 170C/325F for 10minutes till cookies are done, but not brown.
Cool completely on rack before storing in air tight container.
**1. I use Van Houten. Recipe originally stated 4g, but I found it too much and dry out the dough. Maybe my digital scale was not accurate enough for small measurements.
**2. After cutting out first batch of star-shaped cookies, I still had a lot of dough left. As I did not want to spoil the distinct marbled effect by gathering and kneading the remaining dough too much , I simply rolled and shape the remaining into a log. Wrap it with a plastic bag, and after chilling for 30minutes, the dough is ready to be sliced into 1cm thick round cookies. I then baked them the same way as per the recipe instructions.
