Candy Corn and Peanuts make an awesome combination in these pb cookies!
After having a peanut and candy corn mix that tasted fantastic I decided to make a cookie version! Candy corns melt in the middle creating a nougat like center. It’s a great salty/sweet combo!

  • Step 1

    Heat oven to 325°F.

    Cream together butter, peanut butter and both sugars with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.

  • Step 2

    Add egg and vanilla and mix until fully incorporated.

  • Step 3

    In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt.

  • Step 4

    Add flour mixture to butter mixture stirring until blended. Stir in peanuts.

  • Step 5

    Form 1 inch balls of dough, inserting one or two candy corns into the center. Make sure dough completely covers the candy on all sides. Place on baking sheet and slightly flatten.

  • Step 6

    Bake 13 to 15 minutes.

    Remove from oven and immediately press a few candy corns into the top of each cookie. Let cool several minutes (baking sheet should be cool enough to touch). Carefully transfer cookies to wire rack to cool completely.
