    Peanut Butter Brickle Cookies
    this morning for the Keni recipe challenge. They didn't turn out like Keni's did in her photo. I've always made my Mom's Peanut Butter cookie recipe and it does differ from this one in a few aspects. The major difference being that Keni's recipe calls for 2 cups flour and my Mom's just calls for one.

    I followed the recipe exactly with one substitution.....instead of a stick of butter I used 1/2 cup margarine. I know y'all exclaim that butter is always better, but I've always used margarine in the vast majority of my baking, so I'm sticking to it. :)

    If you go to Keni's recipe page you'll see hers flattened out a lot more than mine did. My Mom's recipe always flattens. These are quite crumbly.

    Keni says to drop the dough by spoonfuls on to the cookie sheet and then flatten with a sugared fork. The dough I had wasn't spoonable and so I just rolled them in a ball, dipped the ball in sugar and then flattened them with a fork.

    Keni said to let the cookies sit on the cookie sheet for 3 min. or so after taking them out of the oven but I found the toffee bits stuck on to my cookie sheet so it was actually better to pull them off the moment I got them out of the oven.

    There's an entire cup of toffee bits in there. I've never used them before. Found "Skor" brand in my grocery store. They're pretty neat. But you can't really taste that they're in there.

    These cooked up in exactly the 12 min. that Keni said. They taste nice but I don't think I'd make them again. I don't know what I did Keni, but they turned out different from yours. Miss you around here.

    They look so delicious!!
    Peanut butter and butterscotch are a great combo, so I can see how the skor bits would work with the peanut butter. But what a bummer you couldn't taste them in there!! I wish I could sample one right now, they still look yummy!

    Oh darn, too bad these didn't turn out right Janet. I think they look yummy though, and you can see the melted toffee bits between each crack, which makes me want one :)

    Nice pictures! I wonder why the recipe didn’t work as well for you. Over the years I swear baking ingredients “change” and thus don’t yield the same results.

    I have never used toffee bits before, but in Keni's ingredients when it say's "with or without chocolate" does that mean the toffee bits can come with chocolate bits in the toffee pieces or just little chunks of chocolate along with the toffee bits in the bag? I'll have to be more observant on the baking aisle next time lol.

    I'm not sure Michelle....since Keni said they preferred plain toffee bits I just looked for those and was pleasantly surprised when I found them. They'd be great on ice cream all on their own. :)

    Toffee bits are either coated in chocolate or not coated.

    I think your cookies look perfect, Chuckie! We don't like thin crunchy cookies, so thick and chewy fit the bill for us - yum!
