Snickers Bar Cookies

After going through the cupboard and challenging myself to create another fun cookie but something a little out of the ordinary I came up with these.

Many variations have the cookie dough wrapped around the snickers bar, so I took it all apart and created my own dough recipe with cut up snickers in the dough.

I also used Whole Wheat flour to give the cookie some body, better flavor and some whole grain goodness. AP flour is so old school, and not as healthy.

Ingredients

1 c
vegetable shortening
1/4 c
honey roast peanut butter
1 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
1 Tbsp
molasses
1/2 c
sugar
2 large
eggs
2 1/2 c
whole wheat flour
1 tsp

2 tsp
natural vanilla extract
1 1/2 c
cut up snickers bars (approx 30 minis cut in 1/4's)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2
In a large mixing bowl cream together shortening, peanut butter, sugars, molasses and vanilla. Add in one egg at a time at blend on medium speed till mixture is light and fluffy.

4
Add in snickers bars and mix together to fully incorporate ingredients.

Drop by rounded cookie scoop (Muffin scoop-2 tbsp) onto greased airbake cookie trays. If you do not spray them you will need a chisel to remove the baked caramel that oozes from the cookies when they cool.
6
Bake for 6 minutes, pull from oven and press a sugared fork onto the tops in crisscross pattern to slightly flatten cookies. Put back into over for another 5-6 minutes or until cookies just begin to set.

As usual, make sure you try one before emailing Wendy Rusch on how much you enjoy their caramel flavor.
