Description

Christmas in a cookie, at least to me. I’m coming up on my 21st Christmas in this world, and thanks to Mom, I have had these cookies at every one (maybe not the 1st, but I’m sure I wanted them!). Peanut buttery, sugary, melt-in-your-mouth chocolatey. Do you prefer more cookie or more candy? Maybe some of each size. The world is your oyster with this holiday (or anytime!) treat.

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Shortening
  • ½ cups Sugar
  • ½ cups Brown Sugar
  • ½ cups Peanut Butter
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 2 Tablespoons Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1-¾ cup Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 bag Brach's Chocolate Star Candies

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream together shortening, sugar, brown sugar, and peanut butter. Add egg, milk, and vanilla. Beat well.

Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the peanut butter mixture, mixing well.

Roll dough into small/medium-sized balls. How large you go depends on whether you want more cookie or more candy in each bite. Roll balls in a plate of extra sugar, coating entirely. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 7 minutes. Remove from the oven and top each cookie with a chocolate star, pressing it in gently. Return cookies to the oven and bake for 2 to 3 more minutes.

(I have found that after a batch or two, I have to reduce the initial 7 minutes to 5 or 6. Keep an eye on your cookies!)
