Milano Cookies in 5 Easy Steps - An Old School Favorites Recipe

September 25, 2015
Our friends at Old School Favorites really know their chocolate. They're a small, family-owned company who recently became a finalist in Martha Stewart's American Made competition. They already have our vote, so show 'em some love and give them yours!

Anyway, their signature chocolate "Szauce" is absolutely amazing. We decided to make a whole bunch of retro recipes using that special Szauce to show our support.

Did you know Milanos are super easy to make? We borrowed this recipe from Old School Favorites' recipe page:


-12 tablespoons butter, softened
-2 ½ cups powdered sugar
-7/8 cup egg whites (appx. 6 eggs)
-2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
-1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
-1 (8 ounce) jar of Old School Favorites chocolate Szauce

    Step 1 - Warm the Oven

    • Preheat oven to 350°F.

    Step 2 - Mix the Batter

    • Using a stand mixer (I can't live without my KitchenAid!), cream the butter using the paddle attachment.
    • Then mix in the powdered sugar.
    • Add the egg whites gradually (no yolks!). 

    • Lastly, add the vanilla and finish the batter by mixing in the flour until just incorporated. 

    Step 3 - Pipe It

    • Fill a piping bag with the batter.
    • Using a small (1/4-inch) plain tip, pipe 1-inch long segments of batter onto a parchment-lined sheet pan. I actually ran out of parchment paper and greased the pan with butter instead. Space your batter segments 2 inches apart, as the batter will spread.

    Step 4 - Bake

    • Bake for 10 minutes, or until light golden-brown around the edges.

    Step 5 - Assemble

    • Let the cookies cool.
    • Spread a layer of Szauce on half the cookies and create sandwiches by placing a plain cookie on top.
