To go along with our Owl theme this week we made these cookies. Aren't they cute? I can't remember where I saw a picture of these. I know they used Hersey's kisses for the eyes and cashews for the beaks but I didn't have either of those. I did have M&M's and candy corn and it worked perfect!
Here is the recipe.
Peanut Butter Cookies
1 1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup Crisco
3 T milk
1 T vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1. Heat oven to 375.
2. Combine brown sugar, peanut butter, Crisco, milk and vanilla in a large bowl and beat till well blended. Add egg and beat will mixed.
3. Combine flour baking soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture and mix till blended.
4. Roll into balls and place 2 balls next to each other on cookies sheet and smash down.
5. Bake at 375 for 7-8 minutes. Cool for 1-2 minutes on cookie sheet before removing. I added the M&M's and candy corn while the cookies where still warm.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies
