Tuesday Cook Off ~ Peanut Butter Pretzel M&M Cookies

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Peanut Butter Pretzel M&M Cookies

It’s almost a month after Christmas and I still have Christmas M&M’s.   I need a recipe that I could use the M&M’s up so I don’t keep eating them by the handfuls!  Enter Sally’s Baking Addiction and her fabulous Peanut Butter Pretzel M&M cookies.   If you love peanut butter, chocolate and/or pretzels then this cookie is for you.   If you have been reading my blog you know my family LOVES pretzels and peanut butter.   This was the recipe for me to bake and stop eating those M&M’s by the handfuls 🙂   My boys gave the cookies a thumbs up!

Recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction

Ingredients: 

1/2 cup salted butter, softened to room temperature ( I used 1/2 cup of unsalted butter and added 1/4 teaspoon to the flour)

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/4 cup sugar

1 large egg

3/4 cup creamy peanut butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup M&M’s

3/4 cup pretzel pieces

Directions: 

In a large bowl using a hand-mixer or a stand mixer with the paddle attachment cream together the butter and sugars on medium speed.  Add the peanut butter, 1 large egg and vanilla in that exact order.  Next you need to add the flour and baking soda but make sure you do not over mix batter.

Fold in the M&M’s and pretzel pieces slowly without over mixing the batter.  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.  I chilled mine for 2 hours.

Preheat oven at 350 degrees.   Use a small tablespoon and spoon the chilled dough onto the cookie sheets.  Next you want to flatten the dough a little bit.  I used a small glass bottom to lightly flatten my dough.   Bake for 8-9 minutes and your cookies will look a little undone and soft. Let the cookies cool completely on the cookie sheet.   The cookies will firm up as they cool.    Cookies stay fresh at room temperature in an airtight container for 10 days.

Makes 3 dozen small cookies

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

There is nothing better than a peanut butter cookie…except for a peanut butter cookie with chocolate chips!  We all love peanut butter cookies in this house but last week my youngest son asked if I would make a peanut butter cookie with chocolate chips.   I think I found a winner!  This recipe makes thick and chewy cookies,  just the way we like our cookies in this house.   Plus, the cookies almost melts in your mouth.    They are truly delicious!   Don’t like chocolate chips in your peanut butter cookies?  Not a problem, we have a awesome peanut butter cookie here.

The only thing I did different in the recipe is refrigerate the dough for about an hour before cooking.   This helps with the cookies spreading too much during cooking and leaves you a nice thick cookie.   This recipe also freezes very well!  That’s always a plus in this house.   Just take cookie out of freezer about 5 to 10 minutes before you would like to eat it.   Delicious!

Recipe from: Mel’s Kitchen Cafe

Recipe yields 4 to 5 dozen cookies

Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup (16 tablespoons) butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 cups smooth or chunky peanut butter
  • 1 ½ cups firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ tablespoons milk
  • 1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (or a combination of peanut butter and chocolate chips)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl combine the butter and peanut butter and beat the mixture until it is light and fluffy (you can do this with a hand mixer or with an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment). Add the brown and white sugars and mix until well combined. Add the eggs and mix for 1-2 minutes, until the mixture is well combined and light in color. Add the milk and vanilla and mix. Add the dry ingredients and mix just briefly. While there are still large spots of flour, add the chocolate chips (or peanut butter chips or both) and mix until the flour is completely mixed in and the mixture is well combined. Let the cookie dough sit for 15 minutes before scooping onto the baking sheets. It will firm up as it sits.
  3. When ready to bake, scoop tablespoon-sized balls of dough onto silpat or parchment-lined baking sheets leaving about 1 to 2 inches in between the cookies to allow for spreading as they bake. Bake for 10-11 minutes, taking care not to overbake in the slightest! Leave the cookies on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes after baking before removing them to a cooling rack. This will help them set up and be firm enough to transfer without having them overbake in the oven. The cookies may look slightly underbaked but they will firm up as they cool. Resist the urge to eat them warm as they taste much better cooled.
  4. I pop baked and cooled cookies into the freezer (in a large tupperware or freezer-safe ziploc bag) and they taste great out of the freezer, especially if they are left to sit at room temperature for a few minutes.

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Peanut Butter Cookies

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Peanut Butter Cookies

My oldest son just loves peanut butter.  Actually, so do I.   But finding a good peanut butter cookie recipe has been hard.  After trying many recipes, I think I found a winner.   My whole family just loves them and my oldest sons friends request for me to make them all the time.   That’s how I know it’s a winning recipe!  These cookies are soft and chewy with just the right amount of peanut butter.   This recipe is super easy.  Aside from the 2 hour chill time these cookies are a snap to make.   I promise you will love them!

Recipe from: The Busty Baker

Makes about 30 – 2 inch cookies

Ingredients:

1 ¼ cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
½ cup granulated sugar, plus more for rolling cookies
½ cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

1. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together butter, sugars, and peanut butter just until smooth. Add egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Add the flour mixture and mix just until the dough comes together.
3. Cover and refrigerate the dough for at least 2 hours or up to overnight. Remove the dough from refrigerator and let it come to room temperature.
4. With racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven, preheat to 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment or silicone baking mats. Pour about ¼ cup of granulated sugar in a small bowl.
5. Using a 1-inch cookie scoop or a heaping tablespoon, roll dough into 1-inch balls. Roll them in the granulated sugar and place on prepared cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Using the back tines of a fork, make a crosshatch pattern on each cookie, flattening it slightly.
6. Bake, rotating sheets halfway, until cookies begin to brown at the edges but centers still look slightly uncooked, 9 to 10 minutes. Cool cookies on the baking sheet for 3 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
