Holiday Candy Cookies

A recipe I acquired from a cookie swap.


  • 1 1/3 cups brown sugar firmly packed
  • 2/3 cup butter softened
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 package M&Ms red and green
  • 1 cup white chocolate baking chips


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine sugar, butter, and peanut butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed (1 to 2 minutes).
  3. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until well mixed (1 to 2 minutes).
  4. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder and baking soda. Beat until well mixed (1 to 2 minutes).
  5. Stir in oats, m&ms and chips by hand.
  6. Drop dough by heaping teaspoons into paper-lined mini muffin pans. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until set and light golden brown.
  7. Let stand 2 minutes; remove from pans.
  8. Note: When I put my paper liners into the mini muffin pans they kind of crumpled up, so I used regular muffin pans with the mini liners and they seemed to make a prettier cookie.
