Milk Dud Stuffed Sugar Cookies Recipe

Let’s talk sugar cookies. Sugar cookies rolled in raw sugar. Sugar cookies, rolled in raw sugar, and (are you ready?) stuffed with Milk Duds. Yes, you read correctly. Milk Duds.

Milk Duds are my favorite movie treat, and I was as impressed by the cleverness of this recipe (who thinks this stuff up anyway???) as I was intrigued – and more than a little skeptical. How good could these really be?

Oh, crazy good.

The sandy texture of the raw sugar elevates a perfectly nice but pretty ordinary cookie. And the Milk Dud? It becomes a soft, caramel-y center and is absolutely, unbelievably delicious. I love watching someone eat one for the first time –  eyes slightly closed – and asking, “Oh my god – what is IN this???”.

It’s up to you whether you tell or not.

Milk Dud Stuffed Sugar Cookies
adapted from My Kitchen Addiction

2 1/2 c. flour (12 ½ oz.)
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
3/4 c. (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 c. granulated sugar (150 g.)
1/2 c. packed dark brown sugar  (96 g.)
1/4 c. light corn syrup
2 t. vanilla extract
1 egg
1 box Milk Duds (5 oz.)
1/2 c. coarse raw sugar (100 g.)

Preheat the oven to 375. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using  a mixer, beat the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar till light and fluffy. Beat in the corn syrup, vanilla and egg.  Gradually add the flour mixture, beating till just fully incorporated.

Shape rounded tablespoons of dough into a ball, pressing a Milk Dud into the center of each ball. Be sure to cover the Milk Dud completely with the dough.

Roll each ball in the raw sugar and place it on the prepared baking sheets. Be sure to space the cookies 2 – 3 inches apart.

Bake the cookies for 10 – 11 minutes, until they are just pale golden on top. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
