1 c. butter, softened
1 pkg. (3 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 c. crushed peanut brittle
2 1/3 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda

In a medium bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add egg and vanilla; beat until blended.

Fold in peanut brittle.

Add flour and baking soda; stir to make a soft dough.

Cover bowl and refrigerate at least 3 hours. Shape dough into 1 inch balls.

Place balls, about 2 inches apart, on ungreased baking sheets.

Dip tines of fork into flour and press tines across tops of cookies to flatten; press again to opposite direction.

Sprinkle cookies with granulated sugar.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes, or just until cookies are golden. Remove from baking sheets and let cool completely on wire racks.

Makes 4 dozen cookies
