M&M Peanut Butter Cookies

When Taffy Mail got in touch asking if I wanted to try and create some recipes with the contents of their American Candy Subscription Boxes, of course I jumped at the chance. I love developing recipes, especially where American Candy is involved, or any candy for that matter. I made two recipes with their “Classic Box” over the weekend. These M&M Peanut Butter Cookies and some American Candy Cupcakes which will be featured on Taffy Mail’s Blog later this week. Make sure you look out for those.

Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients:

Makes 10 cookies

170g butter

200g caster sugar

100g light brown muscavado sugar

1 large egg

330g self-raising flour

2tbsp peanut butter

Filling of your choice. I used Peanut Butter M&Ms and a Peanut Butter Snickers cut into small squares

Method:

Preparation: 10 minutes | Baking: 12 minutes

1. Preheat oven to 200c (180c fan) and line 2-3 baking trays with baking paper.

2. Mix together the butter, sugar and peanut butter until light and creamy. Add the egg and mix again.

3. Gradually add the flour, making sure your mixture doesn’t get to dry.

4. Add your “filling” and stir again gently to ensure it’s evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.

5. Roll the dough into 10 balls and place on the baking trays, pressing down slightly. Leave plenty of room for the cookies to spread. Place in the oven for 12 minutes.

6. Leave to cool. They will continue to harden in this process.

Enjoy…

I’d love to see your photos if you have a go at making these M&M Peanut Butter Cookies. Have you tried making your own Viennese Whirls yet?

Until next time,

    These look so delicious!! My favorite Christmas cookie growing up was just plain Christmas themed M&M cookies. I’m sure making it into a peanut butter cookie is even better!! 🙂
