Recipe of the Month Desserts - Peanut Butter Mice

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 11/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup peanut halves
  • 2 tablespoons green and red miniature M&M baking bits
  • 4 teaspoons miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 60 to 66 (2-inch) pieces red shoestring licorice

In a large mixing bowl, cream peanut butter, butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour and baking soda; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Refrigerate for one hour or until easy to handle.
Roll into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Gently pinch each ball at one end to taper. Insert two peanut halves in center of each ball for ears. Add one M&M baking bit at tapered end for nose and two chocolate chips for eyes.
Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until set. Gently insert one licorice piece into each warm cookie for tail. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Yield: About 5 dozen.
