A couple of weeks after Halloween and we still have 5 bags of candy leftover. I can’t just bring bags of candy to work, I need to put them in treats! today, I used peanut butter snickers in peanut butter cookies!
A couple of tips I want to offer. when measuring flour, instead of pouring from the bag into a measuring cup, use the scoop method. take a spoon and add appropriate amount of flour into yoir measuring cup that way. some directions for baking suggest to put all your dry ingredients in a separate bowl and them add them to your butter/sugar mixture. I have never done that. I prefer less dishes to clean. 🙂 I just add them to my butter/sugar mixture added the cookies come out fine.
10 tbs of butter (softened), 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tsp vanilla, 4 eggs, 2 1/4 cups flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt, 1 1/2 bags (15 ounces) of peanut butter chips (melted in 30 secon increments until you can stir mixture smooth)
Beat butter, brown sugar and sugar. add eggs and vanilla. mix in melted chips. add dry ingredients. I use an ice cream scoop (or 2 tbs of dough) and wrap each around a snickers. then I chill the dough, do the cookies don’t spread as much. bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. if cookies are a little doughy, leave cook them longer, in minute interivals until you get the desired result. leave them on the pan for another 5 minutes and them move them to a plate, tin foil etc to completely cool.
