These milk dud cookies are a soft, chewy, crunchy, delicious cookie treat that tastes great with flaked salt on top!
¾ cup butter, softened 1 cup packed brown sugar ½ cup white sugar 2 large eggs 2 teaspoon vanilla 2 ¾ cup flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 36 milk duds Flakey Sea Salt *optional
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set the sheet aside.
Cream together the butter and sugars in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add in vanilla and mix again.
Add the flour, baking soda, and salt to the bowl, mix until just combined.
Portion the dough out into rounded tablespoons and press a milk dud into the center of each dough ball, covering it up completely.
Place about 8 well spaced cookies on each cooking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with flakey salt if desired.
The edges will look dark and set with the centers looking slightly underdone.
Allow to rest on the baking sheet for at least 5 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack.
