Peanut Butter M&M Cookies


Peanut Butter M&M Cookies


It's almost Christmas!  Do you have everyone checked off your list?  If there happens to be a chef on there then I have the perfect gift; the Kenwood Chef Kitchen Machine!  It comes with three mixing tools: the K-beater, the whisk, and the dough hook!  With 750 watts of turbocharged power and the professional-grade precision of Electronic Variable Speed Control puts the chef-inspired Kenwood Chef Kitchen Machine in a culinary class all its own.  It has over six speeds, a pulse option, a tilt head, a bowl with two handles, a bowl seating pad, and one of my favorite things...a splashguard! Who wouldn't love this gift?

I've had the pleasure of reviewing the Kenwood Chef Kitchen Machine for awhile now.  I showed you this Sour Cream Bundt Coffee Cake and now these Peanut Butter M&M Cookies.  One of my favorite features is the splashguard.  It covers the top of the bowl, and there's an opening that you lift up and add your ingredients right into it without them going everywhere.

Ingredients are as follows: 

½ cup shortening
¾ cup peanut butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
2 tablespoons milk
1½ cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 cup walnuts, chopped
1 cup red and green M & M candies


Directions: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.  Prepare a large sheet pan with parchment paper; set aside. 
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the shortening and peanut butter together. 
  3. Add the sugar, brown sugar, egg, and milk. Mix well.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. 
  5.  Mix in the walnuts and M & Ms; mix until combined.
  6. Use a rounded tablespoon of dough for each cookie and roll into a ball. Place the dough about 2-inches apart on the sheet pan. Press a few extra M & Ms into the cookie dough balls if you want them to show more.
  7. Bake for 12 minutes. The cookies will be soft in the center but will set up upon cooling. 
  8.  Cool for 3 – 5 minutes on the sheet pan. Then remove to a wire rack and enjoy!
