 Peanut butter cookie

This is a fun cookie project to do with the kiddos, and a great edible display for your upcoming holiday party! The recipe is really very simple. Use your favorite peanut butter recipe, and accompany it with M&M’s (both big and mini) and mini chocolate-covered pretzels. The peanut butter cookie recipe I use is:

Ingredients:

1/2 cup of butter

1/2 cup of peanut butter

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 1/4 cup flour

3/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

Large Red M&M’s

Mini Brown M&M’s

Mini Chocolate Cover Pretzels

Seattle Holiday

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375˚

Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl and set aside.

Beat until creamy the butter, peanut butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Add in the egg and vanilla and beat again until creamy.

Add the flour mixture 1/2 cup at a time and mix until combined.

Spoon out the cookie mixture and roll in you hand. Press slightly flat onto cookie sheet and pinch one end (for the nose).

Bake 10-12 minutes.

Right when they come out of the oven lightly press two pretzels for antlers, one large red M&M for a nose, and two mini brown M&M’s for eyes.

Let set, and then enjoy!
