Sweet Milk Cookies

Sweet Milk Cookies created by CoffeeB

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.

    A great tasting cookie. Very easy to make. My cookies turned out a little brown, but still a great cookie. My company loved them. Thanks for the great recipe, that I will be making again.

    MMMMmmmmm, these are a nummy little decadence that truly live up to their name. Kind of remind me of a nutmeg crisp cookie that I have posted but only because of the great taste of nutmeg that comes thru nicely in this cookie. A soft type cookie which I'm surprised about because normally when I add cream of tarter to a cookie, they come out more crisp. I"m going to make another batch of these so I can use up the rest of my can of sweetened condensed milk. I did use a low-fat version of the milk, just to make myself feel better:-) Oh and I followed your directions for the sugar amount by only using 3/4 cup. I believe that's plenty too. I chose to roll the dough into balls and flatten slightly b/f baking instead of rolling out and using cookie-cutters. Thanks for a great all around cookie Debi~ Made for HolidayTag.
