Peanut Butter Nugget Cookies

Who doesn't love peanut butter and chocolate? Throw some almonds and toffee on top and I'm sold. Taste of Home says, "Baking cookies to share doesn't get much easier than this. Stir together four ingredients. Bake. Top with a nugget." I couldn't agree more with that statement. Share these cookies with neighbors and friends this holiday season and they will surely thank you.

Adapted from Taste of Home Nov. 2011

You Will Need:
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 12 toffee nuggets; halved

Here We Go:
  • In a large bowl, cream peanut butter and sugar until light and fluffy
  • Add the eggs and vanilla; beat until ingredients are blended
  • Roll into 1 1/4 inch balls
  • Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets
  • Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until top are slightly cracked
  • Immediately press one chocolate nugget halve into the center of each cookie
  • Cool for five minutes before removing from pans to wire racks

Makes 2 dozen cookies
Happy Feasting!

4 ingredients plus a nugget? Sounds like my kind of cookie!

That's a pretty easy cookie recipe. Seems perfect for some sort of quick cookie-needing moment like an unexpected guest dropping by or last minute snack. Also...peanut butter, chocolate and toffee are all good in my book!
