I've never been a huge peanut butter cookie fan. In fact I used to totally dislike them until I received some as a gift with little hershey's kisses in the center. The gooey chocolate mixed with peanut butter was amazing. I found this recipe mixed with m&m's and it is heavenly. This makes a huge batch of cookies and trust me, you will need every last cookie!
Peanut Butter M&M Cookies
2 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup butter
½ cup vegetable shortening
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs (beaten)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup M&M’s (or if you're like me, the whole bag!)
1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cream butter, shortening, peanut butter and sugars. Stir in flour, baking soda, and baking powder.
3. Add eggs and vanilla extract and mix.
4. Roll into small balls, place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet and with a fork dipped in flour flatten cookies. Then flatten in the opposite direction so they cross.
