Today’s Try It Tuesday is legen-wait for it-dary!
Because one of my favorite shows–How I Met Your Mother–aired its last show EVER last night, my sister and I decided to bid farewell to our five friends with a HIMYM-themed treat!
Remember when Lily met The Mother (AKA, Tracy) on the train on the way to Farhampton and they shared some delicious cookies?
I found the recipe on Pinterest! Woo!
Here’s what you need:
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
36 bite-size chocolate-covered caramel candy bars (I used Rolos!)
First, beat together the first 4 ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth. Then, add in the eggs and vanilla, and blend.
Then, in a small bowl, stir together the flour and the next 2 ingredients. Add that to the butter mixture and blend. Cover the bowl and chill for about 30 minutes. (I actually recommend chilling for maybe 45 minutes to an hour. The dough was SUPER sticky when I tried to roll it).
While the dough is chilling, preheat your oven to 350°F. When the dough is done chilling, get about 2 tablespoons of dough and roll it around a mini candy. Place the dough balls about 3 inches apart on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
Bake for 13 to 14 minutes or until lightly browned.
Let them cool for about 5 minutes and then dig in!
These cookies were SOOO yummy! I think next time, I’ll try to make the cookies a teensy bit smaller. Maybe use 1 tablespoon of dough instead of 2. That way the dough-to-candy ratio is a bit more even.
P.S. Did you watch the finale? What did you think?
