XL Peanut Butter cookies with Peanut Butter M&Ms and peanut butter chips

Peanut butter cookies with peanut butter chips and peanut butter m&ms

I have been baking a LOT of chocolate chip variety cookies and brownies lately and wanted to make something different. Plus, I wanted to give something to our friends as a thank you for helping us put recently. They love peanut butter treats so I made peanut butter cookies (extra large, of course), with Peanut butter m&ms and peanut butter chips. These made only 9, but they are large.

Remember to scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup and to chill the dough for a few hours before baking.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, grated with a cheese grater or chopped up into tiny cubes
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup peanut butter m&ms
  • 1 cup peanut butter chips

Directions – cream butter, brown sugar and sugar. Add eggs, vanilla and peanut butter. Blend in dry ingredients. Fold in chips and m&ms. Divide dough evenly into 9 pieces and form tall mounds. Chill a few hours. Preheat oven to 410 degrees for 20 minutes. On a baking sheet lined with nonstick baking liners, place 4 to 5 cookies. Bake 10 to 12 minutes (light golden patches). They may seem undercooked, but will cook more once removed from oven. Let cool 30 minutes on sheet. Cool completely and store in covered container.

Mini chocolate chips, crushed Oreos and a smores sandwich cookie

I had some smores sandwich cookies that I picked up and thought they would be good to stuff in a cookie. So I put together a chocolate chip cookie dough, added some mini chips and crushed up the remaining 10 Oreos I had leftover from my peanut butter pie recipe. And I stuck a smores sandwich cookie in the middle of it. I have no idea if these will be good or not, but I think the people,at work will eat them.
