Directions

  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 recipe. Batter holds together well and cookies bake nicely. Looks very festive with holiday candies.

So far they seem great (they are still warm from the oven)! I added Reese's Pieces as the candy. And I used a mixture of dark and light brown sugar. They were done in my oven after 6 minutes. They brown quick! Glad to have found a peanut butter recipe that didn't require shortening or chilling for 2 hours! I needed these cookies quick! I will make them again soon!

Not a bad recipe - easy to throw together and a great use for those extra candy-coated mini chocolates from Christmas baking. I think I'd use a little bit more peanut butter than called for, but they're a nice cookie. I suspect perhaps JILLZY007 may have over-baked them? I find them a nice chewy/soft consistency, even when cooled. I'd do it again.
