It has the flavour of peanut brittle….and everyone loves peanut brittle.
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tbsp. good quality vanilla
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/4 cups flour (sifted)
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 1 pkg. Reese peanut butter chips
- 1 cup Skor toffee bits
- 3/4 cup peanuts (unsalted)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, cream the shortening with both sugars and add the vanilla until creamy. Beat in the egg.
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt and add to the shortening until well incorporated.
Stir in the 1 cup peanut butter chips and all the Skor bits and peanuts.
Drop by a rounded tbsp. about 2 inches apart and bake for 11-12 minutes until golden in colour and just set.
Cool on the cookie sheet for about 4 minutes and then remove to cooling racks to completely cool down.
Melt the remaining chips along with 1 tbsp. cream in the microwave for about 35-40 seconds and drizzle over the cooled cookies.
