Maria cookies, the homemade recipe

It may be difficult to get the look of the cookies from the market, but surely they taste much richer. These Maria cookies have a delicious butter aftertaste and they have a very crunchy texture. Make them and tell us how they turned out.


  • 500 gr de harina
  • 150 gr. of butter
  • 100 gr. white sugar
  • 50 gr. brown sugar
  • 1 XL egg
  • the tip of a baking powder knife
  • a bit of milk


  1. We put the flour, we combine it with the yeast, and we add the butter chopped, a little soft, the two types of sugar and the egg. We mix with our hands.
  2. Once these ingredients are well mixed, we add the milk little by little to achieve a fine but full-bodied dough.
  3. We roll out the dough on a table with a little sprinkled flour to make it as thick as two euro coins. We cut the cookies with a round pasta cutter. We can practice the decorative motifs of these cookies if we get a suitable mold or tampon.
  4. We place them on a baking sheet covered with non-stick paper and bake them at 180 degrees for about 18 minutes to brown them. We will let them cool with the paper on a rack.

Weight of a package of Maria cookies

Maria cookie packages usually come four at a time. Four packages joined by a plastic wrap that is much more comfortable. In this way, we can remove each package individually, without opening the others. Each of them weighs 200 grams. What we are before 800 grams if we talk about all the product we buy. Since as you well know, they cannot be purchased individually. Although better this way, because we would run out quickly.

    Hello, I think it's a very good recipe, but please, how much milk ??? I imagine that it is important so that the dough does not become soft if it is added a lot or too hard if it is added too little.

  2.   Maribith Fabi said

    cris M you are seeing that your fingers do not stick you manipulate it a little but quickly put your finger in and if it comes out dry, ready!

    Hello, how many cookies come out more or less? How do we keep them and how long do they last? Thank you

    1.    irene.arcas said

      Hi Lorena,

      With these amounts you will get like 40 or 60 cookies depending on the size and thickness you give them. I recommend that to start you make half of the ingredients. You can keep them in metallic boxes, plastic bags or tuppers, but only when they have cooled completely, okay? If not, they will be soft. Thanks for writing to us!
