Nutterbutter Peanut Butter Cookies
 
Cook time
Total time
 
Serves: 25-30 cookies
Ingredients
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup shortening
  • 1 cup peanut butter (I like crunchy, but creamy works, too)
  • 1 cup honey
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 12 oz. bag peanut butter chips
  • 15-20 crushed Nutterbutter cookies (not too crushed - it's fun to have some big chunks of Nutterbutter in there)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt, and set aside. Beat the shortening, peanut butter and honey together for 3-5 minutes, until smooth. Add in the eggs one at a time and mix well. Gradually add in the flour mixture, mixing until just moistened. You will be folding in your Nutterbutters and peanut butter chips later, so you can finish up any mixing at that point.
  2. Fold in the Nutterbutter cookies and peanut butter chips. Roll the dough into balls and place on greased and/or lined baking sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes, until just barely golden (I like very soft, chewy peanut butter cookies). Remove from oven and let cool for a bit on your cookie sheets before removing and placing on another surface to finish cooling. Makes 25-30 cookies.
