Heath Bits Peanut Butter Cookies

Ok, so here she is, my first born, my main helper in the kitchen and my sister, Donna's, goddaughter. She is 5 1/2 years old, getting ready to start kindergarten in September and whenever cookies are being made she is right there on her stool , ready to help and lick the spoon or eat the dough. She makes me laugh and cry, but she loves peanut butter so these are for her. I got this recipe from my sister, Donna, over at My Tasty Treasures . She got the recipe from the back of the Heath Bits bag. I do love back of the bag recipes. They are really good, and full of peanut butter and chocolate toffe, it doesn't get much better than that. These are a keeper.


Heath Bits Peanut Butter Cookies



1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
3 TBSP milk
1 TBSP vanilla
1 egg
1 1/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/3 cup Heath Milk Chocolate Toffee bits,divided


Heat oven to 375.

Beat shortening,peanut butter,brown sugar,milk, and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Add egg; beat until just blended. Combine flour,baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture. Stir in 1 cup of toffee bits; reserve the rest for topping.

Drop by heaping teaspoons about 2 inches apart onto parchment lined cookie sheet(I love parchmant paper). Top each with reserved toffee bits. Bake 7-8 minutes or until set. Do not overbake. Cool 2 minutes. Remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Makes abot 3 dozen cookies.






My Justine loves them, maybe you will too.

  11. When I first saw the title of this post, I swear I saw Health bits. But that was wishful thinking! Or just me trying to persuade myself that if I make these and eat all of them, they will in fact be good for me. Your daughter is so adorable, what a good helper!
