Cardamom Sugar Cookies
Makes about 36 cookies
  • 2 cups (454 grams) unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1½ cups (300 grams) granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 (14-ounce) can (396 grams) Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 5½ cups (688 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon (15 grams) baking powder
  • 1½ teaspoons (3 grams) ground cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon (3 grams) kosher salt
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and 1 cup (200 grams) sugar at medium-high speed until smooth, 3 to 4 minutes, stopping to scrape sides of bowl. With mixer on low speed, slowly add sweetened condensed milk, beating until well combined, about 1 minute, stopping to scrape sides of bowl.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cardamom, and salt. With mixer on low speed, add flour mixture to butter mixture, 1 cup at a time, beating until combined after each addition. Divide dough in half (about 750 grams each). Wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line 4 rimmed baking sheets with parchment.
  4. Working with 1 disk at a time, divide dough into 40-gram portions. Roll portions into balls, and roll in remaining ½ cup (100 grams) sugar. Working quickly, firmly press dough balls with desired cookie stamp*. Remove excess dough from cookie press as needed. Place about 1 inch apart on prepared pan. Freeze until firm, about 15 minutes. Repeat procedure with remaining dough.
  5. Bake until edges start to turn golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool completely on pan.

    • Hi Anne,

      Thank you for your question! We have not tested this recipe with gluten-free flour. However, that’s not to say that it wouldn’t work. If using a recipe that doesn’t specifically call for gluten-free flour, like this one, I’d recommend using a gluten free 1:1 baking flour and substituting according to package directions (typically substituting 1:1 by volume). If you do try them with gluten-free flour, please let us know how it goes!

      Hope this helps, and happy baking!

  1. Can’t wait to try these!! Sounds delish! Looking forward to using my fresh cardamom!! Going to surprise my mom who was born in Finland. Thanks!!
