Week 1 - Snickers Cookies

Week 1 Intro - Cookies

Snickers Cookies - Inspired by chocolate chip cookies, and my favorite candy bar, I made some snickers cookies. The chocolate chip cookie recipe came from my old Children's Step-By-Step Cookbook. 

I'm a "crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside" cookie kinda person, so I like to make them in a cupcake pan. Try it out with your favorite candy :)

     - 1/4 lb. softened butter (1 stick)
     - 1/3 cup sugar
     - 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
     - 1 egg
     - 1/2 tsp. vanilla
     - 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
     - 1/4 tsp. salt
     - 1/2 tsp. baking soda
     - 1 bag "fun-sized" Snickers cut into small bits

     - Beat together the butter and both sugars in a large bowl, until creamy.
     - Break the egg into the bowl, and beat in until smooth. Then add the vanilla extract and mix it in.
     - In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking soda. Then fold into the butter mixture until smooth.
     - Add the candy pieces, and mix in evenly.
     - Butter the cupcake tin, and spoon in the cookie batter.
     - Bake for about 12 minutes at 375 degrees.
