"Great looking....great tasting and easy to make. I like taking these cookies into the office or giving them away as gift. Looks like you worked so hard. This recipe is from an old Pillsbury magazine."

Ready In:
1hr 40mins
24 cookies




  • Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In large bowl cream brown sugar, sugar, margarine and shortening until light and fluffy.
  • Blend in vanilla and egg.
  • Stir in flour, baking soda and salt (is using) and mix well.
  • Divide dough into 3 parts. Place in small bowls. (Note - I make two of the parts a little bit larger than one as you will be adding 1/4 cup peanut butter to it and there always seems to be more of that mixture left at the end otherwise).
  • Add chocolate chips it one part, peanut butter to second (smaller portion) and melted chocolate to the third.
  • Refrigerate dough for about 30 minutes for easier handling.
  • Shape approximately 1 tsp of each dough into a ball. To form each cookie place one of each flavour balls cloverleaf style onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until set. Let cool for a few minutes before carefully removing from cookie sheets. This is important as these cookies can be fragile at first.

  1. These cookies are awesome, especially if you don't know what flavor you're in the mood for. This way, you can have them all!


I am married to the love of my life (corny, but true) and we are empty-nesters (Yipee). My hubby and I also live with two cats (Mouse and Normy) and a bunny I found hopping around in the parking lot at work (PJ). I've never owned a rabbit before, and he is an exceptionally cute, sweet and funny rabbit. PJ is spoiled. He has his own bedroom (no cage for PJ) and is litter trained. Who would know that a rabbit would make such a cool pet :-) My husband and I like to try new recipes. We work well together and have fun cooking (and tasting) together. I am especially brave (I'm told) because I pick new recipes and try them out on company. Hey, if you like all the ingredients, what can go wrong? My pet peeves...hmmm... people who are mean to animals and rudeness. :-( I love to read, cookbooks too. I am scared of Cilantro :-)
