Mini Confetti Peanut Butter Cookies
1/2 c. chunky peanut butter
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 stick margarine, softened
1 1/2 c. flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. mini candy-coated semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In an electric mixer, beat the peanut butter, sugars and butter together until you reach a creamy consistency. Add in the egg, salt and flour until mixed well. Add the candy-coated chocolate chips and mix on low just until the chips are well incorporated.
Roll a teaspoon of the dough into a ball and place on the baking sheet, 1 1/2 inches apart. Using a fork, press down horizontally and then vertically to give it the checker look. Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown and still soft in the middle. Cool on a wire rack before serving or storing.
