This recipe is going to be Legen… wait for it…
How I Met Your Mother is such a cute show, and I’m excited to see how they wrap up the characters’ storylines in the final season. At the tail end of last season we finally saw “The Mother,” and in the final season debut she shared some delicious cookies with Lily.
Nicknamed “sumbitches,” they’re peanut butter, chocolate and caramel. I opted for Rolos, but I think any bite-sized candy would be delicious. Just think tiny — the cookies are already big!
… dary. Legendary.
“Sumbitches” Peanut Butter, Chocolate & Caramel Cookies
From People.com’s Great Ideas Blog
Makes 36 cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
36 bite-size chocolate-covered caramel candy bars (I used Rolos)
Beat first 4 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla, and beat until blended.
Stir together flour and next 2 ingredients in a small bowl. Add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Cover and chill 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Shape a 2 tbsp. dough around each mini candy bar, using lightly floured hands, and roll into balls. Place 3 inches apart on ungreased or parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake for 13 to 14 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
