These Milky Way stuffed cookies are the perfect weekend sweet treat
One word, delish.
It's the weekend and so it's only fair that you treat yourself at least once.
And this is the treat to trump all treats. Last week I made these Milky Way cookies and I won't lie, I think I ate four straight off the rack before they even cooled down. Yep, they were just that good.
So, being the kind soul that I am, I decided to share the recipe with you which comes from InspiredTaste.net. Now you too can indulge in these tasty biscuits.
The prep only takes 25 minutes and it's simple to follow.
Here's what you need:
- 16 tablespoons (230 grams) butter, softened (2 sticks)
- 150 grams granulated sugar
- 150 grams lightly packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 190 grams plain flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 280 grams chocolate chips
- 12 to 14 “fun-size” Milk Way candy bars
1. Make Batter
Heat oven to 190 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
In a large bowl, beat the butter, both sugars and the vanilla extract on medium speed with a hand mixer until creamy, light and fluffy. This should take about 2 minutes. Next add the eggs, one at a time, beating until blended.
Separately, in a medium bowl, whisk to combine the flour, baking soda and the salt until blended. Add the flour mixture, in three parts, to the butter mixture, beating until incorporated and scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Stir in the chocolate chips.
2. Stuff Cookies
Use the palms of your hands to roll about 12 cookie dough balls, using 2 tablespoons of dough for each. Flatten one cookie dough ball, place a Milky Way into the middle. Flatten a second cookie dough ball and cover the Milk Way. Crimp the edges so that the Milky Way is completely covered. Repeat with remaining dough. You should be able to make 12 to 14 stuffed cookies.
