Sweet Milk Cookies

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by kittycatmom

My DH told me a story about cookies that his Mom and Grandma used to make.... they don't really have a name, he calls them "Grandma" cookies! His Grandma called them Sweet Milk Cookies. Either way, they are just delicious. I have no idea where this recipe is from as DH had it scribbled on a piece of paper. Recipe is from about the 1930's to 1940's. **These are best when frosted.

Made these for KK's Cookie Exchange Event. These made up into very nice and tasty taste treats, frosted with a nice cinnamon sugar frosting. Everyone here raved as did the people who received them in their gift baskets. Thank you for a nice recipe, and please thank your dear husband for saving it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all ingredients except flour together. Add enough flour to make the dough roll-able.
  3. Refrigerate approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  4. Roll dough out to approximately 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutter.
  5. Place on greased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. If you make a rolled cookie instead of a cutout may need to increase baking time.
  6. Allow to cool in cookie sheet 5 minutes before transferring to cooling racks.
