This recipe rocks! I feel like I’m always making the same cookies over and over again, and this one was so different. This recipe consists of a really yummy peanut butter cookie filled with…

Milk Duds!! Yummy!!

And the finished product, a cookie with a warm melted candy center! The recipe is amazing by itself, but when I tasted the first batch, I was craving a little more chocolate since milk duds don’t have a thick layer alone. So I added an extra chocolate chip or two in the center with the milk duds. But with or without the extra chocolate, they were still so good!


  • 1 1/2 cups butter-flavored shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (10 ounces) Milk Duds

In a mixing bowl, cream the shortening, peanut butter, 1 1/2 cups of sugar and brown sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Chill for at least 1 hour.

Shape 4 teaspoons of dough around each Milk Dud so it is completely covered. Roll balls in remaining sugar. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until set. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks.
