If you love peanut butter cookies, try this delicious variation. The brickle pieces add a terrific crunchy-chewy texture to an old favorite.


  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • One 7 1/2-ounce package almond brickle pieces (1 1/3 cups)


In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter or margarine with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the brown sugar, granulated sugar and baking soda; beat till combined. Beat in the eggs, peanut butter and vanilla. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour with a wooden spoon. Stir in the almond brickle pieces.

Drop the dough by rounded teaspoons, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or till golden brown. Remove the cookies from the pans and cool on wire racks.
