Milk Dud Cookies

Whenever one of my friends travel to the States I ask them to bring me back some candy and Milk Duds are on top of that list. To be honest I'm usually not a fan of caramel but when I was an exchange student in Colorado (years ago) my host mom introduced me to Milk Dud cookies and I was sold.

Baking temperature : 350°F or 175°C       Bake time: 9-11 min       Yield: 32 cookies approximately 


1 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
Some sugar for dipping
1 cup peanut butter
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Milk duds


  • Cream together the butter and sugar. Beat until fluffy, then add peanut butter.
  • Whisk the eggs and add previous mix. Stir until well combined
  • Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix.
  • Take about a table spoon of the cookie dough, place a milk dud in the middle and dip the cookie dough in sugar.
  • Place the cookie on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F or 175°C for 9-11 min.

Look mum no hands! Clerkenwell

During our London trip we were staying in Clerkenwell, I wasn't familiar with the area but we discovered some great places to grab coffee and have breakfast. Look mum no hands! was by far our favorite, hands down. It happens to be not only a cafe but also a bike shop. 

I must confess that even though I ride a bike on a daily basis back home, I don't feel brave enough to ride a bike around in London traffic.

Fresh fruit and fresh baked goods.

Gorgeous latte art.


And bikes everywhere.
