Toffee Peanut Butter Cookies

This is a recipe that used to be on the back of Heath bits packages. It seems like a basic cookie recipe but boy, are those cookies good!

Toffee Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup shortening

3/4 cup creamy Peanut Butter
1-1/4 cups packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/3 cups (8 oz. pkg.) Heath Bits

Beat shortening, peanut butter, brown sugar, milk and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Add egg; beat just until blended. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture. Stir in 1 cup bits; reserve remainder for topping if desired.
Drop by heaping teaspoons about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet; top each with reserved bits.
Bake at 375 for 7 to 8 minutes or until set. Do not overbake. Cool 2 minutes. Remove to wire rack. Cool completely. About 3 dozen cookies.

Have you tried this recipe using butter instead of shortening.

I haven't. This recipe was originally on the back of a bag of Heath Bits. I liked them as they were so much that I haven't bothered tinkering with the recipe (like I usually do with recipes). I'll have to try it out and let you know.
If you try it first, be sure to leave a comment and let me know how they turn out!

Thanks for the idea!
