*SPOILER ALERT*  Only keep reading if you've seen the first 2  episodes of this season of HIMYM!

On the premiere of the final season of How I Met Your Mother (airing  Mondays at 8pm on CBS), 'The Mother' (the chick on the left) bonded with Lily on  a train to Farhampton (not a real place, sadly).  Lily was having a  particularily rough day, and 'The Mother' (who doesn't have a name yet...), made  her feel better with cookies.

Cookies she called




1 cup butter, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 cup creamy peanut butter

2 large eggs

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. salt

36 bite-size chocolate-covered caramel candy bars


1. Beat first 4 ingredients at medium speed with an electric  mixer until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla, and beat until blended.

2. Stir together flour and next 2 ingredients in a small  bowl. Add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Cover and chill 30  minutes.

3. Preheat oven to 350°F. Shape a 2 tbsp. dough around each  mini candy bar, using lightly floured hands, and roll into balls. Place 3 inches  apart on ungreased or parchment paper-lined baking sheets.

4. Bake for 13 to 14 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool  on baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer to wire racks.
