Comfort & Joy & Snicker-Doodles


May your joys always be greater than your sorrows.


Baking cookies with Kiki is always a good time according to Annabelle. She really wanted me to share this recipe with you. It’s not your typical snickerdoodle, but that’s the way it goes around here.  It’s not like you need another cookie recipe, but this is what happens when I clean out the cabinets of two half empty jars of peanut butter and a freezer full of snicker bars that were leftover from Halloween. She thinks it is a great cookie for a holiday exchange. Get it? She is so smart already. Merry Christmas!



  • Servings: 5 to 6 dozen

2 ½ cups all purpose flour

1-teaspoon baking powder

1-teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup unsalted butter, softened

1-cup peanut butter

¾ cup dark brown sugar

½ cup sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

20 mini snicker bar candies, each chopped into 8 pieces

Heat oven 350F. In bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside. In stand mixer fitted with paddle, beat sugar and peanut butter for 1 minute or until blended. Add sugars; beat 5 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; blend well. With mixer on low, gradually add dry ingredients until just mixed in. Stir in chopped candy bars.
