Cookies are always popular. They are a favorite dessert for the lunch box crowd or with milk after school. Next time, treat your family to the chewy, crunchy goodness of peanut brittle cookies!
Peanut brittle cookies are easy, economical and delicious. Simply combine crushed peanut brittle with the basic cookie dough, drop by the spoonful onto greased baking sheets, and place them in the oven to bake. You can crush the peanut brittle easily by placing it between sheets of wax paper on a board and pounding it with a mallet. The unusual flavor of peanut brittle will bring pleasant calls for more. Why not bake a second batch?
Or, for that family member away from home, wrap each cookie individually and send them on their way. The surprise will be remembered for a long time, and requests for more are sure to follow.
