Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

Butter cookies, rolled in chopped peanuts before baking, resemble the Blarney Stone in Ireland.
Heat oven to 350°F.
Combine powdered sugar, butter, egg and vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until light and fluffy. Add flour; beat at low speed, until well mixed. Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into 1-inch balls.
Beat egg yolks and water with fork until well mixed in bowl. Dip balls of dough into beaten egg yolks, then into peanuts. Place onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 12-16 minutes or until top springs back when touched lightly in center.

I hate to say how disappointed I was with these cookies. I don't bake a lot but found dipping the balls in egg yoke and then peanuts really time consuming. They easliy took 20 minutes to cook and then came out fairly flat - not like the picture. But the worst part was the taste - there was hardly any. Even the (Planter's Dry Roasted - not a store brand) peanuts didn't add much taste.
I have been making these every year since 2003 and they are always a big hit! They are easy and delicious.
very yummy would surely make again

Great cookie. Peanut taste, but not too peanutty. Got great reviews.

Every year around this time, I start to panic a little. How am I ever going to decide what cookies to bake for the holiday season?! Do I stick with the classics or try something new?
