  • Total Time
    Prep: 25 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch + standing
  • Makes
    about 4-1/2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 milk chocolate candy bars (4 ounces each), chopped
  • 1 cup finely chopped unsalted peanuts

Directions

  • In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Cover dough and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until easy to handle.
  • Using a cookie press fitted with a star disk, press dough into long strips, 2 in. apart, onto ungreased baking sheets. Cut each strip into 2-in. pieces (do not separate pieces).
  • Bake at 350° for 7-9 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  • In a microwave, melt candy bars; stir until smooth. Dip 1 end of each cookie into chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Coat with peanuts. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set.

  • Taste of Home
  • recipes are tested with lightly salted butter. Unsalted, or sweet, butter is sometimes used to achieve a buttery flavor, such as in shortbread cookies or buttercream frosting. In these recipes, added salt would detract from the buttery taste desired. Need more peanut butter in your life? Try these creamy recipes.
