Southern Cookin' Makes You Good Lookin'

Peanut Butter and Snickers cookies

on 12/28/2011

So, here’s the Reader’s Digest/Campbell’s Soup version…you know, condensed.  Saturday, i was introduced to a cookie that was a “Holy Cow!” experience.  It made up for some disappointment in the situation (which is another story) but sometimes things happen for multiple reasons and i figure this cookie was one of them.  Thank you to a very sweet lady  named Joyce who made them and a very funny and sweet lady named Geri who insisted i try them.

Now, this is what you need to know.  If you can make peanut butter cookies (whether from scratch, a mix or know how to open up a roll of the refrigerated stuff), you’re good to go.  You also need to be able to not only open up mini Snickers bars, but also not succumb to eating all of them.  The latter is the most difficult part of the process.





Because i’d had enough cooking to do for Christmas, i cheated and bought a bag of the dry Betty Crocker Peanut Butter cookie mix.  It is scrumptious!  No  matter how you arrive at your cookie dough, basically all you need to do is get a good-sized spoonful of it and “wrap” it around a mini Snickers bar.  Bake them at 350 degrees for about 8–12 minutes on a parchment lined or greased cookie sheet.  My first sheet’s worth i overbaked, really–you want them to look a little underdone. Not mushy, falling apart but not browned and with crisped tops, if you know what i mean.

Not a lot of info for you, i suppose, but i winged it and it worked great!  Wonderful little cookies!  I had 5 out of 5 thumbs up on my taste testers.

These cookies are just like my two youngest nephews, Corey and Hank, who have just celebrated their birthdays.  Sweet and nutty!  Happy Birthday, guys!  Aunt April loves you!!!


Happy Birthday, Hank!

Happy Birthday, Corey!
