Best Milano Cookies Recipe – How To Make Copycat Milano Cookies

Crunchy and sweet, and sometimes minty, Milano cookies enjoy their perch at the top of our childhood fancy cookie list. Turns out they’re surprisingly easy to craft and customize. Creamy butter is the only sourdough these cookies need. The microscopic bubbles created by the creaming swell under the heat, resulting in a light and buttery cookie, perfect for a rich chocolate ganache. If you want a mint version, just add a teaspoon of mint extract to the ganache.

Consistency of piping is key. Feel free to draw lines on the back of your parchment paper to guide you. And if one of them is less than perfect, just scratch it and re-channel it.

  1. Adjust an oven rack to the central position and preheat to 350 °. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Make the ganache: Add chopped chocolate to medium heatproof bowl. In a small saucepan, bring the cream to a simmer. Immediately pour the hot cream over the chocolate. Let stand 2 minutes, then whisk lightly to create a smooth sauce. Put aside. (At this point, the ganache will be quite loose. But by the time the cookies have cooled, it will be thick enough to fit between layers. If it is still too loose, refrigerate for 5 minutes and stir.)
  3. Make the cookies: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle or in a large bowl using a hand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar on medium speed.
  4. In a small bowl, use a fork to break up the whole egg. Add the egg white and stir to combine. With the mixer on, add the eggs little by little, making sure that they are well incorporated before adding the remaining eggs. Stir in the vanilla extract and milk.
  5. Using a spatula, incorporate the flour to combine well. Move the cookie dough into a pastry bag fitted with a large round nozzle (1/2 “).
  6. Pour the dough directly onto the baking sheets. They should be placed about 3 “long and at least 1.5” apart, as they will spread throughout the oven. Bake both trays simultaneously for 15 minutes, turning the mussels halfway through cooking. Continue baking until the cookies are golden around the edges. Transfer to a cooling rack.
  7. Fill in the cookies: Once the cookies are completely cool, pour or pour a teaspoon of ganache between the cookies to make sandwiches. (Not too much, otherwise it will spill over the sides.) If you must serve the cookies immediately, refrigerate 5 to 10 minutes to help the ganache set in place.

Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Unfilled cookies can be frozen and reheated in the oven for 5 minutes at 350º. Any leftover ganache can be used to make amazing hot chocolate.
