Chef's Note
An irresistible afternoon-pick-me-up for peanut butter lovers. Chocolate-covered peanuts add a decadent new twist to this traditional favorite cookie.
Ingredients for 40 cookies
- 375 ml (1 1/2 cups) all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 250 ml (1 cup) peanut butter
- 125 ml (1/2 cup) butter or margarine, at room temperature
- 125 ml (1/2 cup) brown sugar
- 60 ml (1/4 cup) granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 375 ml (1 1/2 cups) chocolate-coated Peanuts
  1. In a small bowl, stir flour with baking soda and salt until well blended. In a large bowl, beat peanut butter with butter until smooth and creamy.
  2. Beat in brown and granulated sugar until light. Then beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture until combined. Stir in chocolate covered peanuts.
  3. Roll dough into 1-inch (2.5 cm) balls, spacing about 2 inches (5 cm) apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
  4. Dip a glass in granulated sugar and flatten balls slightly. Garnish with peanut halves if desired, pressing gently into cookie.
  5. Bake in centre of preheated oven until cookies are a light golden colour and tops are firm to the touch, about 12 minutes.
  6. Transfer to a rack to cool. Store in an airtight container.
