Mounds Candy Bar Cookies
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup Dixie Crystals Light Brown Sugar
- 1/2 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour*
- 4 tablespoons unsweetened natural cocoa

*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.

- Cream butter and both sugars. Add eggs, milk and vanilla. Beat until fluffy.
- Sift together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Blend into creamed mixture. Do not overmix.
