Cuisine: American
Serves: 90
Ingredients
  • 2½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter, smooth
  • ½ cup shortening
  • ½ cup butter, unsalted, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 large egg
  • 10 oz. pkg. Semi-Sweet Dark Chocolate M&M's Baking Bits
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set side. (Note you do not need to use parchment paper, but I like to when I bake)
  3. In a bowl, add flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; mix together; set a side.
  4. In a large bowl add sugar, brown sugar, peanut butter, shortening, butter, vanilla, maple syrup and eggs; beat until combined. Lightly beat in flour mixture until combined. Stir in M&M's Baking Bits.
  5. Scoop 1 tsp. batter and place about 3 inches apart on cookie sheet.
  6. Bake in oven for 7 - 9 minutes until lightly golden. Let the cookies rest on baking sheet for 5 minutes, then place on a cooling rack.
  7. Note: These cookies taste best under baked. I found 8 minutes to be perfect, however my oven cooks fast. You want them just slightly golden on the bottom.
Notes
You can roll into a ball and make a crisscross pattern with a fork dipped in sugar if desired.
