Peanut-Sitting-Pretties

From the kitchen of M&M recipes in a magazine.

These cookies have been a Christmas favorite for many years, similar to a shortbread cookie.
We usually quadruple the recipe as it does not make a large batch.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ¼ cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg, separated
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Finely chopped nuts
  • 1 can vanilla creamy frosting or homemade
  • M&M peanut candies

Instructions

1. Blend butter and sugar in a bowl, stir in egg yolk and vanilla. Sift flour and salt into bowl and mix well. Chill 1 hour. Roll into 1-inch balls.
2. Dip balls into slightly beaten egg white and roll into nuts. Place 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
3. Bake in moderate 350 degree oven for 5 mins. Press thumb gently in center of each cookie, bake 5 mins. more.
Gently move to cooling rack, cool completely and fill with frosting and top with peanut M&M.
