  • 3/4 cup butter, softened (1.5 sticks)
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • Green Sixlets


  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, peanut butter, sugar, and brown sugar with electric mixer for 30 seconds. Add egg and stir until combined.
  2. On low speed, add in vanilla. Add baking soda and stir for 10 seconds. Slowly add in flour and mix for 30 seconds, or until dough is combined.
  3. Mix in white chocolate chips.
  4. Scoop into 1-tablespoon sized balls and place on a parchment-covered baking sheet. Lightly flatten the tops of each cookie so they are more like thick discs. This will help them bake more evenly.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes.
  6. While warm, press 3 green Sixlets into the tops of each cookie. Allow for the cookies to continue to cool on baking sheet for 5-10 minutes until removing cookies from the baking sheet.
