    Recipe Introduction

    This is a very forgiving recipe, great for getting rid of some of that left over halloween candy. You can substitute out some of the candy for other kinds.

    2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons cinnamon
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 cup butter, softened (or margarine)
    1 cup firmly-packed brown sugar
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 egg
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 cup yogurt-covered raisins
    1/2 cup chocolate-covered peanuts
    1/2 cup Reese's pieces

    1 Preheat oven to 375.
    2 Sift together flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt into bowl and set aside.
    3 In a large bowl, using an electric mixer set on medium, cream butter, brown sugar and sugar.
    4 With the mixer on low, beat in egg and vanilla.
    5 Beat in flour mixture a little at a time until a soft dough forms.
    6 Combine rasins, peanuts and reese's in a medium bowl.
    7 Gently fold in half of the candy mixture, being careful not to break up the candy pieces.
    8 Drop onto ungreased baking sheets, about 2" apart by heaping teaspoons.
    9 Sprinkle the tops of the dough balls with the remaining candy mixture, pressing lightly to adhere.
    10 Bake cookies until lightly golden, 10-12 minutes.
    11 Cool completely on wire racks.
