I found this recipe in the Pillsbury's Cookie Book. They're great! If you're looking for a cookie this cookie is huge and is just about a meal in itself.
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 3 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 20 Snickers miniature candy bars, unwrapped
- In large bowl, combine sugars, butter, peanut butter, vanilla and eggs.
- Beat well.
- Add flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
- Mix well.
- Shape about 1/4 cup of dough smoothly around candy bar making sure bar is completely covered.
- Place 4 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake at 375°F for 13-14 minutes or until light golden brown and puffy.
- Cool 10 minutes and remove from cookie sheets.
- Makes 20 HUGE cookies.
These are really good! I didn't want huge cookies, so I cut the dough recipe in half and molded about 2T. (not measuring tablespoons, but table tablespoons) of dough around each of the 20 mini snickers. I had just the perfect amount of dough, and the cookies baked in about 10 minutes (check the time if you do it this way 'cause your oven may be hotter than mine). I'll be making these again!
This is a great recipe. I made them just like the recipe called with the exception of smaller cookies and used regular Snickers bars cut in 8 equal parts for the 2 inch scoop and 16 equal parts for the 1 inch scoop. Super easy if you use a scoop and just fill scoop with dough then press Snicker pieces into the dough, empty in hand and roll in a ball. I had my husband test them before taking them to a Chamber meeting. He ate 5 before he quit. This will take the place of chocolate chip cookies now to take to meetings.
I'm rating this based on the reviews I got at the office. This cookie had people who don't normally snack eating it and several had more than one. I pretty much followed the recipe except for a few little changes. I used the Snickers Almond, 3/4 c sugar and 3/4 c brn sugar (not packed). I also didn't put as much dough around each piece of candy. This recipe is very easy to make...thinking of trying it with Baby Ruth bars or rolos. Mahalo Nui Loa for sharing.
