    Cyllene's Note:

    This recipe is from the 1987 version of the Canadian Living Cookbook. It's the best peanut butter cookie recipe, imo, I always use this one. The original does not call for the M&Ms, but it's my favourite thing to add! If you are going to triple or more the recipe, add an extra egg, it helps keep them whole once baked. The original also calls for 1.5 cups all purpose flour, but I use half and half, and you cannot tell the difference!

    1. 1
      In large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add peanut butter, creaming thoroughly. Beat in egg and vanilla. In separate bowl, combine flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Blend into creamed mixture. Fold in M&Ms if using. Shape into small balls (1-1/4 inch / 3 cm in diameter) and place on cookie sheets (greased or lined with parchment paper). Flatten slightly with floured fork.

      I like these cookies. I really like that they only call for 1/2 cup butter and no crisco like so many other peanut butter cookies. I put in peanuts but left out the M&M's. I got 24 three inch diameter cookies.
