Giant Ornament Cookie

Yield: 16 servings


  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups Gold Medal all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tub Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy vanilla ready-to-spread frosting, if desired
  • Assorted candies


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Beat sugars, peanut butter, butter and egg in a large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon.
  3. Stir in flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  4. Spread dough in an ungreased 12 inch pizza pan.
  5. Bake about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Cool completely in pan, about 30 minutes.
  7. Spread frosting on cookie.
  8. Decorate with candies.
  9. Loop string licorice through ring-shaped hard candy to make hanger for ornament.


If the recipe calls for just “peanut butter,” rest assured that either chunky or smooth will work well. The choice is yours!

A store that sells candy in bulk is a fun place to find interesting candies for decorating because you can buy them in small amounts.
