A sweet, peanut buttery cookie that’s crunchy around the edges and soft in the middle. It’s made with chocolate peanut butter and peanut butter M&M’s.
In a large mixing bowl add the butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Using an electric mixer on medium to high speed beat for 30 seconds. Add the eggs and vanilla and continue to beat until combined. Set aside.
In a medium bowl add the flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Gradually add flour mixture into the peanut butter mixture and beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour. Add M&M’s and beat it so that it breaks up some of the pieces.
If necessary, cover and chill dough for about 1 hour or until easy to handle. I didn’t need to do this.
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Put the remaining sugar in a shallow bowl. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and roll them in the sugar. Place cookie balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Using the tines of a fork, flatten balls by making criss-cross marks on top. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until bottoms are light brown. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
Eat and enjoy!
