Snickers Cookies

I have been craving Peanut Butter for the past 2 weeks. It got so bad that I would sneak into the kitchen just to smell the stuff (I'm trying to avoid all those calories). So when Sunday baking came along I knew whatever I made had to include Peanut Butter. I found this Snickers Cookie recipe and knew I had found the winner. These cookies were absolutely divine! I allowed myself to indulge in some of the dough and I almost went overboard. I could have eaten the entire bowl and not even cared about the cookies. It was SO amazing! Hubby loved them and we ended up sending them all home with my sister so we wouldn't eat the entire batch. They are that good!

Snickers Cookies
4 Tbsp. Butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 egg (whisk one egg- use 1/2 of it and throw the rest away)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
Mini Snickers

Cream butter and sugars together. Add peanut butter and mix well. Add egg and vanilla. Mix. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to wet mixture and mix well. Seperate dough into 18 balls. Flatten each ball- set an unwrapped snickers in the middle and wrap dough evenly around the candy, forming a ball. Bake at 350 for 11-12 minutes. Makes 18 cookies.

1 cookie = 3 points (points plus)



  1. I love these cookies. I usually drizzle some melted chocolate over the top of them to pretty them up some.

  2. I'm so glad others are falling in love with those gorgeous cookies! Love TracyM's idea of a little chocolate drizzle.
