1. Preheat oven to 375F and place rack in center of the oven. Grease two baking sheets.
2. In a large mixer, beat butter, peanut butter and sugars on medium until mixed well and light in texture, about 2 minutes. Add egg and vanilla; beat until thoroughly combined. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt until dough forms. Roll into 1-inch balls and place 1 inch apart on prepared sheets.
3. Bake (recommend one sheet at a time) until just set and bottoms are golden, about 8 to 10 minutes. For each cookie, while warm, place 1 M&M in center for nose, 2 miniature chocolate chips for eyes, and broken pretzel for antlers. Transfer cookies to a wire rack or flattened paper bag and let cool completely.
Can be made ahead, store in an airtight container.

"What's the secret, you ask? Well, hidden inside this modest looking peanut butter cookie is the mother of all peanut butter and chocolate candies...a Reese's Peanut butter cup! Delicious, and every kid dreams of helping you make them once they figure out the 'secret' for themselves!" —

ZithI was really excited about these cute cookies, but they turned out small, crumbly, and fell apart when I tried to decorate. Recommend caution when trying this recipe for the first time.2y ago

kyjaxmomI used my own peanut butter cookie recipe and it turned out fantastic! I would prefer regular chocolate chips though, the eyes looked too small.3y ago
