1
In a large bowl, combine the room temperature unsalted butter, sweetened condensed milk, and fine sea salt.
2
Use a spatula to mix the ingredients until the butter is fully blended into the condensed milk.
3
Gradually incorporate the cornstarch, continue to mix with a spatula.
4
When it starts getting challenging to use the spatula, switch to using your hands. Keep mixing until a smooth dough forms. Use just enough cornstarch to get to this point, all cornstarch may not be required.
5
Scoop about a teaspoon of the dough, roll it into a ball, and then use your thumb to press a thumbprint into the top of each ball, shaping them like thumbprint cookies.
6
Arrange the cookies on two baking sheets lined with baking paper.
7
Gently flatten the cookies using a fork and create signature fork indentations.
8
Refrigerate the formed cookies for 30 minutes to prevent them from spreading in the oven.
9
Preheat your oven to 350°F, placing the rack in the center.
10
Bake the cookies for about 15 minutes until they start to turn golden at the bottom. The tops should remain light in color.
11
Remove the cookies carefully from the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheets for 15-20 minutes.
12
After 15-20 minutes, transfer them to a wire rack to completely cool down before serving.
