  1. In a large bowl, cream butter or margarine, peanut butter, and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt; blend into creamed mixture. Stir in 1 1/3 cups mini candy-coated chocolates.
  2. Shape dough into 1 1/4 inch balls. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Gently flatten to about 1/2 inch thickness. Place 7 to 8 of the remaining candies on each cookie; press in lightly.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 10 to 12 minutes, or until edges are light brown. Do not over bake! Cool about 1 minute on cookie sheets; transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

Very good cookie, they made nice cookies in small, big, and even a couple hand-span sizes (just make sure to flatten slightly so the middle is done when the edges are). I was envisioning a light...

Great cookie! I'm baking like crazy to freeze some individually wrapped packs of cookies etc for school lunches. These cookies fit the bill perfectly! They are very chewy even when cooled. I'...

The cookies turned out a little dry and crumbly. Will try for a better recipe.
