Peanut Butter Milk Dud Cookies

I jotted this recipe down on a little scrap of paper one day when visiting my MIL. I think it might have been out of a Taste Of Home magazine but I'm not positive.
Anyways, I finally got around to making them this weekend and they were pretty good. They taste like a peanut butter cookie with a chewy caramel center.
*Ever notice that most of my recipes contain chocolate or peanut butter or both.*

Peanut Butter Milk Dud Cookies

1 1/2 cups butter, softened

1 1/2 cups peanut butter

2 cups sugar, divided

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

4 eggs

3 3/4 cups flour

2 tsp. baking soda

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

3/4 tsp. salt

10 oz. Milk Duds

Cream the butter, peanut butter, 1 1/2 cups sugar and brown sugar.

Add eggs and beat well.

Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl and mix. Then add slowly to creamed mixture.

Cover and chill dough in refrigerator for 1 hour.

Remove and take about 2 tsp. dough and wrap it around a Milk Dud. Make sure candy is totally covered.

Roll in remaining sugar.

Bake on a greased cookie sheet at 350° for 10-12 minutes or till golden brown.Remove from oven and let set for for 2-3 minutes before placing on wire racks.

I'm afraid that when I make those, I will eat them all up while they are still hot!!! Anyone who wants one will just have to run to the stove.

I'm with Penniwig. I couldn't trust myself with a batch of these beauties and a cold glass of milk.

I saw a similar recipe in a magazine and never copied it down. I used google and your recipe showed up. I made this recipe for a cookie exchange and for my husbands co-workers. Everyone raved and only crumbs were left. Thank You and Merry Christmas. Elise
