A week ago, David was on call Friday night. So, K and I made cookies. I had in mind that we'd make a specific recipe for it called for chilling the dough and we didn't have time for that (or at least not if I was going to let K have a cookie before bed) so I asked her what she wanted to make.
peanut butter cookie recipe I wanted to make. Compromise...use the recipe I want and add M&M's.
Cream Cheese Peanut Butter "Emmie-M" Cookies adapted from Miss in the Kitchen
3 oz Nufchatel cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup M&M's
1/3 cup sugar for rolling
Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large mixer bowl, beat cream cheese, butter and peanut butter
together until smooth. With the mixer on low, add eggs one at a time,
mixing until combined. Add vanilla, 1/2 cup sugar and brown sugar,
beating until all incorporated. Add flour and baking soda and mix until
combined. Stir in M&M's.
Add 1/3 cup sugar to a small bowl. Scoop cookie dough into rounds
and roll in sugar. Place on a lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
Smash cookie dough balls cross-wise with a large tined fork. Bake for 8
to 10 minutes or until cookies just start to brown. Cool for 2 minutes
on cookie sheets and then remove to a wire rack to finish cooling.
