Peanut Butter "Snickerdoodles"

Peanut Butter "Snickerdoodles"

Jamie 0

"I grew up thinking that a snickerdoodle involved an actual Snickers, and a white cookie with cinnamon sugar was called something else. I have been educated, but the name still sticks. These are large peanut butter cookies with your favorite fun size candy bar stuffed in the middle. "

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper, and set aside.
  2. Beat together the butter, peanut butter, 2 cups white sugar, and brown sugar in a large bowl, stirring until well mixed and creamy. Mix in the vanilla extract and eggs.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix the flour mixture, one cup at a time, into the butter mixture, and stir until you have a smooth dough.
  4. Scoop up 1/4 cup of dough per cookie, and form it into a ball around a fun size candy bar. Set the balls onto a baking sheet at least 6 inches apart, and flatten each ball with a fork in a cross-hatch pattern, making sure the cookie dough is still fully covering the candy bar. Sprinkle each cookie with about 1/2 teaspoon white sugar.
  5. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven until the cookies are slightly browned around the edges, 12 to 14 minutes.


  • Cook's Note
  • If you are using more than one type of candy, it's helpful if you impale the candy with a popsicle stick and write the kind of candy on the side that sticks out. If you don't want to go to all of the effort, these make great normal-sized cookies. Form in 1 inch balls, flatten, and bake 7 to 8 minutes at 375 degrees F/190 degrees C.

Just a note to anyone making these cookies--> they're delicious, but if you use the entire recipe, you will probably end up with 50+ cookies, not 24! I cut the recipe in half because I was only ...

These taste great! My mom has made these for a couple years now, she made her own recipe it's pretty cool. She's thinking of trying different candy bars next time too.

the dough tastes great raw, but the cookie was a little disappointing. i halved the recipe and used mini snickers, but i needed more than one bag of candy to use up the dough. i found it best to...

I just did chocolate chips... no snickers it is a nice cookie something different. I did cut ingredents in 1/2 and made over 4 doz.

Everyone that i have gave these to loved them and has asked for the recipe. only difference is i used the mini ones and made smaller cookies

these were phenominal! we made ours with milky way minis,and also made a few with caramels that have frosting in the middle (called cow tails or bullseye caramels around here) for someone who ca...

OK, this recipe really does make A LOT! I cut it in half and we still had more than enough. It's a good cookie, not the most fantastic, but darn nice! The peanut butter flavor is not strong b...

These are delicious! I cooked them without the candy but they were still very yummy! I have a gas stove so I baked mine at 350 degrees and ten minutes only and they were perfect!

I liked very much the taste of these cookies. I wish I could have a little of the Snickers bar with every bite of the cookie, however. The dough was easy to work with, and I did cut back the s...
