Peanut Butter M&M Cookies

It’s almost Christmas!  Do you have everyone checked off your list?  If there happens to be a chef on there then I have the perfect gift; the
Kenwood Chef Kitchen Machine!  It comes with three mixing tools: the
K-beater, the whisk, and the dough hook!  With 750 watts of turbocharged power and the
professional-grade precision of Electronic Variable Speed Control
puts the chef-inspired Kenwood Chef Kitchen Machine in a culinary
class all its own.  It has over
six speeds, a pulse option, a tilt head, a bowl with two
handles, a bowl seating pad, and one of my favorite things…a
splashguard! Who wouldn’t love this gift?

I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing the Kenwood Chef Kitchen Machine for awhile now.  I showed you this Sour Cream Bundt Coffee Cake and now these Peanut Butter M&M Cookies.  One of my favorite features is the splashguard.  It covers the top of the bowl, and there’s an opening that you lift up and add your ingredients right into it without them going everywhere.

Ingredients are as follows: 

½ cup shortening
¾ cup peanut butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar

1½ cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 cup walnuts, chopped
1 cup red and green M & M candies

    the oven to 350°F.  Prepare a large sheet pan with parchment paper; set
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the shortening and peanut butter
  3. Add the sugar, brown sugar, egg, and milk. Mix well.
  4. In
    a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add
    the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. 
  5.  Mix in the
    walnuts and M & Ms; mix until combined.
  6. Use
    a rounded tablespoon of dough for each cookie and roll into a ball.
    Place the dough about 2-inches apart on the sheet pan. Press a few
    extra M & Ms into the cookie dough balls if you want them to show

Here are the full specs for you to see for yourself how amazing this machine is!
  • A
    Turbocharged Motor:
    European-designed motor with twice the power of ordinary stand
    mixers delivers the right amount of torque and handles the heaviest
    dough loads. Dual Motor Ventilation prevents overheating, prolonging
    motor life.
  • Professional
    electronic variable speed control allows ingredients to gradually
    incorporate before mixing them at high speeds, so they stay in the
    bowl and not on your countertop.
  • Stainless
    Steel Tools:

    Included are three professional-quality, stainless steel bowl tools:
    a power whisk, a dough hook and the unique K-Beater – our
    signature tool, specially designed for maximum mixing performance.
  • Handles
    Heavy Loads:

    The solid stainless steel work bowl has rugged handles that make it
    easy to remove from the machine and along with all the tools, is
    dishwasher safe.
  • A
    Warranty Like No Other:

    Comes with a five-year warranty on the powerful motor – further
    proof that Kenwood machines are built to last.

I received this mixer to review, however the opinions expressed are my own.
