Peanut Brittle Cookies
Don't bother with a cookie cutter. Break these cookies apart just like peanut brittle. This recipe can be doubled easily.
Sift together the sifted flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Set aside.
Cream together the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla extract and 2 tablespoons of the beaten egg, mixing well. Gradually add the flour mixture and the 1/2 cup of chopped peanuts. Mix well.
Pat out the dough on a greased baking sheet to a 14x10-inch rectangle. Brush dough with the remaining beaten egg. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup peanuts evenly over the dough and gently press them into the surface of the dough.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Before cookies are cool, break into pieces.
Makes about 2 dozen medium-size cookies.
