Good Morning

I haven’t chosen a cookie yet, but I’m looking for something with condensed milk. For now, here’s a link to the U.S. and World Population Clock. It’s kind of soothing to sit there and just look at it. Plus, you can keep track of people.

I went on a kick trying to use up a lot of condensed milk. Usually I just make fudge. I started adding to everything that had milk – the best was mac n cheese.

Mmmmm Really good Mac n cheese sounds so good. Its cloudy, wet & kind of cold here right now (MN) That really sounds good. Heidi, you should share your recipe?

Hi Anna,
this recipe using condensed milk really caught my eye yesterday on foodgawker:

Ok, I made the mistake I always make and got evaporated and condensed milk confused. Condensed milk would not taste good in mac n cheese!

Heather – my mac n cheese really isn’t a recipe. I just make a bechamel, add in defrosted pureed butternut squash (to get veggies in my son), then add in whatever cooked pasta and cheese I have hanging around.

I ran across this one this morning. I don’t have time to try it, but thought it looked interesting:

Anna, condensed milk is one of my favourite ingredients. In Portugal and Brazil is sooooooo comun, it’s present in the majority of the desserts. But it’s so sweet that i find that people that didn’t grow up eating it as we did, don’t enjoy it as much. Have you ever heared of brigadeiros? They’re the most popular item in kids parties here and in Brazil. http://clumbsycookie.blogspot.com/2008/01/brigadeiros.html

We made some tasty “Chocolate Oatmeal Almost-Candy Bars” earlier in the year for treat day with the sweetened condensed milk that went over quite well!

A couple of years ago, I won the Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk contest with my Coconut Orange Almond Squares. Give them a try and see if you agree they are winners.

Well, I never got around to making anything creative with the condensed milk. Instead, I just made a half batch of Magic Cookie Bars. I used butterscotch chips and chocolate chips and thought they were a little too sweet. No one else complained, though!

Karen, that is an interesting blog you linked to. As for the recipe, it sounds really, really good. I didn’t have all those ingredients on hand, though. It’s going in the “save” pile.

Heidi, your Mac & Cheese recipe sounds similar to the one Todd English made on Martha Stewart. He used butternut squash too.

Dani, I’m going to have reading your blog! Hopefully, I can steal a recipe or two ;).

Kathy, the little Hug cookies are creative. I would have had to buy Hugs, though. Still — they are a good use of extra condensed milk.

CC, thanks for the Brigadeiro story. Those are too cute!

Joe, the almost candy bars are, I believe, Dorie Greenspan’s rendition of Revel bars. I almost made Revel bars but wanted to make something more unique. Then of course, I ended up making dumb old Magic Cookie Squares. Oh well.

Try my Coconut Orange Almond Squares for a new twist to the standard sweetened condensed milk bar. This recipe won the Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk contest at the Western WA fair, and I am rather proud of it!
