Payday Cookies

(This gorgeous cutting board was a recent gift from my sweet friend Janean.
I just LOOOVE it! I love her more;-)


Oh how cool to find this fun recipe at Shugary Sweets!

My granddaughters were glad to help decorate these cookies as they came out of the oven. 

A tasty and perfect cookie for this time of year.

Adding chopped peanuts AND candy corn to a delicious cookie?

What could say FALL any better? 

I reduced the amount of sugar just a tad. With the addition of candy to the recipe, I thought there was plenty of sugar to go around here...

This recipe is easily divided in half if you don't want as many.


Enjoy every lip-smackin' bite!

PAYDAY COOKIES

1-1/2 c. butter, melted
2 c. brown sugar
(I used 1-1/2)
1 c. sugar
(I used 3/4 c.)
3 eggs
1 TB. vanilla extract (yes TB.)
4-1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 c. unsalted peanuts, chopped
2 - 11.4 ozs. bags of M &M Peanut Butter candies (not Peanut...Peanut Butter)
1-1/2 bags (12 ozs each) candy corn

Preheat oven to 375. In large bowl, combine butter and sugars.  Beat for about 2 minutes until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla.  Beat in flour, baking soda and salt. Fold in the peanuts and M & M's.

Drop by Tablespoonsful onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 - 11 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press in candy corn (point first so it goes in easily).  Allow to cool and enjoy!
