Peanut Butter, M&M and Marshmallow Cookies

Peanut Butter = rich and creamy goodness

M&M's = chocolate (need I say more?)

Marshmallows = ooey, gooey goodness

These are some triple-threat cookies - all three of those ingredients are combined in this one amazing little cookie.  They are soft and chewy and full of peanut butter flavor.  

I really can't stop eating these. I'm talking about 5 or more cookies in each sitting!  
Peanut Butter, M&M and Marshmallow Cookies
1/2 c. butter flavored Crisco
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. light brown sugar
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Tbl. milk
1 3/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 c. M&M's
3/4 c. mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium bowl combine flour, salt and baking soda; set aside.  In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat shortening until smooth.  Beat in the peanut butter and both sugars and beat until light and fluffy.  Add egg, vanilla and milk and beat until smooth.  Slowly add dry ingredients.  Gently stir in M&M's and marshmallows.  Place rounded tablespoons of cookie dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper.  Bake for 8-9 minutes (I baked mine 10-11 minutes).  Let cool for a few minutes before moving to a cooling rack.  

Jenn's Notes: I didn't use parchment paper and the oozing marshmallows stuck to the baking sheet, which was fine as long as I let them cool on the b. sheet before removing them.  They don't flatten a whole lot during baking, so if you want a flatter cookie, make sure to press them down a bit before baking.  These are delicious and they stay chewy for several days.  I got 34 cookies out of the full batch.

    1. I was always told that butter makes for a flatter and crispier cookie, however, I have another recipe for peanut butter cookies that is pretty darn close to this recipe except it has oats in it and it uses butter and they are super soft and chewy. So, I would give it a try.

  11. I don't normally like marshmallows, but maybe melted in a cookie would be good...especially with PB :)

  12. They look fabulous! My 5 year old helps me when I bake and one day she wanted to add marshmallows and I stepped aside to let her do her thing. On her own she took a mini marshmallow and sanwiched it between two pieces of cookie dough and then rolled it into a ball so the marshmallow would be in the center only. I baked them and the marshmallow stayed into the cookie and was great to bite into!

  20. I just pulled the last tray out of the oven.... Everything I hoped that they would be! Delicious!
    I didn't have butter flavored Crisco, I used unsalted butter, they look exactly like the pictures and I couldn't imagine them tasting any better! My new fav!
