about 34 cookies Galletas Caseras
Ingredients
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher or coarse sea salt
  • 1 3/4 cups (3 1/2 sticks) butter at room temperature, cut into pieces
  • 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1 cup pretzels broken into about 1/2-inch pieces
  • Cajeta or dulce de leche to drizzle on top optional
To Prepare
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter over medium speed. Add sweetened condensed milk and beat until fully combined and fluffy. Reduce mixer speed to low and slowly add the flour mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl if need be. Continue to mix until it is all incorporated and the dough is smooth, about 1 minute. Fold in the chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and pretzel pieces by hand with a rubber spatula.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Form 1-inch balls and place them at least 1-inch apart on the baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the bottoms of the cookies are lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  • For an extra treat, you may drizzle cajeta or dulce de leche on top.

  1. Oh my gosh….so darn GOOD! Saw this episode and had to make these as soon as I could. They are delicious. Of course, I’m sure the 3-1/2 sticks of real butter and a can of condensed milk have something to do with that lol! Love your show and have both of your cookbooks, Pati. I have made several of your recipes and have been pleased with all of them. Keep up the good work, girl!

  2. I was hesitant to make these cookies because I live in a high altitude area (greater than 6000 ft), so I made half a batch. These cookies turned out awesome! They were so fluffy which is hard to achieve at our altitude.
    Thanks Pati!

  3. I Love your show and watch as often as I can . Can’t wait to make these cookies, I love anything made with butter, yum

  4. Hola from Manila, Philippines! 🙂 I also saw your show and made the cookies over the holidays Janet (also from the Philippines) mentioned. They tasted really good and didn’t last an hour. 🙂 but mine turned out very flat and soft though. And my pretzels were a little soggy. I baked them right away. Was my butter too soft perhaps? How do I retain the crunch in the pretzels?

    1. Hola Micah! (I hope I can come to Manila one day!)
      That is strange… They do lose the puff shortly after coming out of the oven, but I like that about them. And the soft pretzels…. hm. Did you cover the cookies right after baking? Try letting them completely cool before covering. Maybe that will do it!

  5. Hello from Manila, Phils! I was watching TV thinking what to do on a holiday. These cookies look delish. I checked my pantry and I have the ingredients. Will bake now! Love your show! And I bookmarked your website 🙂

  6. I truly enjoy your show, but most of all love the pleasure you get in cooking for your family. I always tell my daughter, Luna, that I want her to have memories of me cooking for her.
    I’m going to make these cookies for Halloween…they will surely be a hit.

    Muchas gracias y saludos!

    1. Mayra, I couldn’t agree more. Family is the most important!! I’m sure Luna will love making the memories with you even more than the cookies themselves! Thank you so much for trying the recipe and for taking the time to write to me!

  7. Hi Pati,
    I have been watching your show on Create TV since you started. I have seen your show evolve from a somewhat shy girl to a confident and very talented young lady. I just LOVE all your recipes!! I just made these cookies for our women’s Bible study tonight and I must admit, I was a little scared when I tasted the uncooked batter and cringed a little. (I love to lick the beaters! hahaha). Even my grand daughter gave the batter a thumbs down. But…after these cookies were done, I was AMAZED at how good they were!! So light and fluffy and soooo good!!! My grand daughter is eating them faster than I can take them out of the oven! I am sure they will be a big hit tonight, if they make it through the next 4hrs without getting eaten! Thank you again! PS. Your zucchini soup is one of my FAVORITE recipes!!! Even though I cannot find the right cheese for it. I just put Queso Fresco and it comes out wonderful!

    1. Kathleen, I am so thrilled the cookies turned out well!! I hope they were a big hit. =) Thank you so much for trying the recipe!

  8. I made this recipe with gluten free Namaste flour and it turned out great. I have a grandson with celiac disease and an allergy to eggs. This recipe will allow him to have treats like the rest of his 6 year old friends at school. I did sift the flour before measuring and chilled the dough for about 1 hour before rolling them and baking them. Thank you!

  9. I just made these for a church bake sale. I’ve never used sweetened condensed milk before and wondered how they’d taste without any sugar in the recipe. Well, the cookies are super-sweet and the peanut butter chips and pretzels balance the dough out nicely, so I’m glad I didn’t substitute other sweeter ingredients! Thank you, Pati, for a quick and yummy cookie recipe!

  10. LOVE LOVE LOVE your show Pati! You’re such a darling! I love to bake and cook ,and I am going to make these cookies today! I also just purchased your cookbook! Cannot wait to go through it thoroughly! 🙂

    1. Hello Kelle!

  11. Thank you for this wonderful cookie recipe. It is soooo good and easy to make. My grandkids are going to love. Also, love your cooking show.

  12. Just made this recipe, and it turned out well. My grandson cannot eat eggs, so thought it would be a perfect choc. chip cookie recipe for him. Thank you so much.

    1. Oh good! You can alternate the ingredients and mix and match: chocolate chips, nuts, coconut, cranberries…
