31 Cookies




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets.
  • In a food processor, blend sugars, butter, egg whites, and vanilla until light and fluffy, stopping once to scrape down the sides of the work bowl, about 1 minute.
  • Add the peanut butter and process using on/off pulses until combined, about 20 seconds.
  • Add flour, salt and baking soda and blend until just combined using 2 to 3 on/off turns; do not over process.
  • Transfer mixture to a large bowl.
  • Cut candy bars into 1/2 inch pieces and stir into dough.
  • Mound dough by 1 1/2 tablespoons onto prepared sheets, spacing 2 inches apart.
  • Flatten slightly using fingers.
  • Bake until dry in appearance and centers are slightly soft to touch, about 15 minutes.
  • Cool on cookie sheets 3 minutes before removing (they will fall apart until the candy hardens up a bit).
  • Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

    These were delicious! The only thing I did was just add 1/4 t more baking soda so that they raised a little more(the first time I made them they were a little flat). Be sure not to overcook them, they get pretty hard if you do
