Malted Milk Ball Cookies

I was on the lookout for a different cookie recipe. These cookies will be making the trek overseas and I just didn't want to send the same ol' chocolate chip, peanut butter, or sugar cookies. Hopefully they are well liked! This came from a recipe contest held in a magazine...I don't remember which one though!

Malted Milk Ball Cookies
2 sticks of butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
2-3 cups malted milk balls, chopped

Beat butter in stand mixer(or hand mixer) for 30 seconds. Add in sugars, salt, and baking soda. Beat until well combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla until well mixed. Slowly add in flour. Fold in malt balls

Drop by rounded tbsp onto cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 mins at 375 degrees. Transfer to cooling rack.

**If you want, hold out 1/2 cup of crushed malt balls and sprinkle them on top of the cookies when they come out of the oven. I used robin eggs, I suggest to use regular malt balls as these were hard to crush!  These are chewy on the inside and crunchy around the edges. Much more cookie like!
