Easy Cookies! No Eggs!

Jonathan has an egg allergy and can't eat baked goods that haven't been cooked at least 20 minutes @ 350.  Well there are not many cookie recipes that cook that long.  These were a great find.  I found them here:

Jen is a wonderful woman that I've known since she was a teenager.  She's multi-talented and her blog reflects only a few of those talents.

These cookies were so, so easy and tasted a little like Mexican wedding cookies with chocolate chips. I'll bet you could roll them in powdered sugar and they would be great.  I think the base of these could be used for many, many things....dried fruit, etc.


1 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. sweetened condensed milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. chocolate chips

1.  Mix butter and condensed milk.  Add salt, baking powder and flour.  Mix just until combined.
2.  Stir in chocolate chips.
3.  Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8 - 10 minutes.

Cook's notes:  I used regular sized milk chocolate.  Mini semi-sweet would have mixed in a little better, but I'm a milk chocolate fan versus semi-sweet.  Bottom line, these were wonderful and a great find!  Thanks, Jen!

8/20/2013 Update: I (Sarah) tried these too today after you posted this. I didn't have any chocolate chips, so I used mini M&M's. It worked great. The boys loved them...though they were a little crumbly and Johnny discovered this and had more fun crumbling his cookies than eating them. What a sassy kid! Here are some pictures I took of my batch:
