I made Peanut Butter Heath Cookies and they are amazing, if I don't say so myself. They are like the perfect peanut butter cookie; soft, chewy, and really peanut buttery. The added HEATH toffee pieces give it a nice crunch and we all know you can't go wrong when adding chocolate as a topping.
Confession: I found the recipe on the back of the Heath Milk Chocolate Toffee Bits package. I've always been a Heath candy bar fan so I stocked up on the baking pieces when they were on sale; another reason I love this time of year.
You must make these. I know Santa would love them.
1/2 cup shortening or unsalted butter
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
3 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 1/2 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup Heath Milk Chocolate Toffee Bits (additional for topping)
1 cup milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or a baking mat. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the shortening or butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add in milk, vanilla, and egg and mix until incorporated.
Whisk together the flour, soda, and salt in a separate medium bowl. Then, gradually add to the peanut butter mixture and mix until combined. Stir in 1 cup of Heath bits.
Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to drop dough onto prepared cookies sheets. Bake for 7-9 minutes until light golden brown.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with extra Heath bits. Melt the milk chocolate in the microwave and drizzle over baked cookies. Allow cookies to cool completely and chocolate to set before storing in an airtight container.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
