Peanut Butter Mini Candy-Coated Chocolates Cookies Recipe
- ¾ cup butter, softened
- ¾ cup peanut butter
- 1 ¼ cups packed brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 ¾ cups mini candy-coated chocolates
step 1: In a large bowl, cream butter or margarine, peanut butter, and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt; blend into creamed mixture. Stir in 1 1/3 cups mini candy-coated chocolates.
step 2: Shape dough into 1 1/4 inch balls. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Gently flatten to about 1/2 inch thickness. Place 7 to 8 of the remaining candies on each cookie; press in lightly.
step 3: Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 10 to 12 minutes, or until edges are light brown. Do not over bake! Cool about 1 minute on cookie sheets; transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
