1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
2 eggs
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/3 cups chunky peanut butter
1/4 cup peanuts, finely chopped
1-1/3 cups marshmallow cream


1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.

2. Whisk together flour; baking soda and salt in a small bowl.

3. with a mixer on medium speed, beat sugars and butter in a medium-size bowl until blended. Beat in eggs, milk and vanilla. On low speed, gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in 2/3 cup peanut butter.

4. Drop batter by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing 1-1/2 inches apart. Top each with 1/8 teaspoon chopped peanuts.

5. Bake in heated 375 degree oven 8 to 10 minutes, until golden. Cool cookies 2 minutes on baking sheets. Transfer to racks to cool completely.
