Condensed Milk Biscuits - Yummy little treats!

I absolutely loved baking these! My little one is a very choosy when it comes to food (already!) and he likes biscuits and when we have tea he joins us for a little snack. I had baked ajwain (carom seeds) biscuits for him in the last months and he really liked them. We had recently bought some extra light condensed milk and had used only half tin in a kheer recipe. The remaining half was sitting in the fridge and I wanted to use it in some recipe. That was when I came up with this one, of course following a few recipes on the internet but replacing a few (actually - all) ingredients for a healthier version.

These were so yummy and my son liked them very much. I could feel very satisfied as I knew what went into it and I knew they were all healthy ingredients. It is so simple and easy to make and the whole recipe took just under 30 minutes.

Here is how I made them

Ingredients (this quantity made around 30 small biscuits)

Wholewheat flour - 2 cups
Condensed Milk - around 150 ml - I used Extra light Carnation Condensed Milk
Butter - 2 tbsp - I always use Utterly Butterly which is 70% less saturated fat.


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degC.
  • Line the baking sheet with cookie paper or parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl blend the butter and condensed milk together until they turn creamy and well incorporated.
  • Add the flour and mix with a spatula.
  • Once it comes together as a uniform mixture, give a good mix with your hands.
  • Take a small amount in your palm, make it into a nice round ball and place it on the baking sheet.
  • The size depends totally on you as to how big or small you want the biscuits. 
  • Once you finish all the mixture, take a fork and press down on each cookie ball gently. 
  • Bake in the oven for about 12 - 15 minutes until the edges turn golden brown.
  • Cool completely before storing them.

A very yummy companion for your cuppa tea or coffee! Enjoy!


  1. Hey Uma, got another idea for this cookie - just add some cocoa and chocolate chips to get yummy choco-chip cookies! I will try the chocolate chip variation once I get some time - currently very busy with moving...

  2. I've never heard of condensed milk biscuits before! This is a must try! On my blog, I have a condensed milk sandwich, but not cookies.
