  1. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine, peanut butter, 1/2 cup white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir into the peanut butter mixture. Cover and chill dough until firm, about 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Roll chilled dough into 1 inch balls. Press a caramel candy into the center of each ball so that it is completely covered with dough. Roll balls in remaining sugar and place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until set. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

These are really good, although I suggest making them with peanut butter cups instead! I'm not really a big caramel fan. I used the same base for the cookies though and it's very tasty.

These were pretty good. I may have overbaked them so they were tough. I prefer regular peanut butter cookies although these are an interesting twist.

made these for the first time a few weeks ago, and have made them 3 times since... everyone loves these. thanks!!

My son just made us a batch of these and they're heavenly!

One recommendation for you. Buy really good-quality chocolate covered caramel candy. I bought the store brand, the quality of the chocolate was not good and, unfortunately, that on its own, t...

I followed the other suggestions (saying the cookies were too sugary) and did not roll the dough in the left over sugar. Instead I sprinkled a tiny bit of sea salt over the cookies before I bak...

very disappointed, was expecting something a bit more special, quite boring.
