Whopper Cookies

         Yesterday my partner for the cookie exchange through mail received her goodies! I kept checking my facebook all day long to see when she finally had gotten them  :) I'm happy to say that she loved everything I sent..including these bad boys..and they are bad.

You know what puts them on the naughty list? you can actually eat the dough..Now lets be honest..I will eat raw cookie dough no matter what. I don't care of there are raw eggs in there..Im sampling. This recipe however has zero eggs in means you could infact grab a giant spoon and take the bowl into the living room,pop a christmas movie in and eat until you pop. I won't judge! These cookies are soft and in the middle they get slighty chewy. The whoppers..or maltesers as they are called over here, hold up perfect in this recipe.

Go make some!!!

Whopper Cookies

2-1/4 cups All-purpose Flour
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
3/4 cup  Butter,softened
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Milk
1 tsp. Vanilla
1-1/2 cups roughly chopped Whoppers or Maltesers ( I put them into a reseable plastic bag and  lighlty tapped  the tops with a rolling pin..way easier than trying to chop them with a knife) 

Preheat oven to 350 or 180 celcius. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in milk and vanilla. then gradually blend in the flour mixture. Do not overmix, stir only until no streaks of flour remain. Gently stir in the chopped whoppers.

Drop by rounded 1-inch balls onto prepared sheet. Bake 12-14 mins,or until lighlty browned. Cool on baking sheet 2-3 mins before removing to wire rack to cool completely.

Yield: several dozen
