Sumbitch Cookies – HIMYM

Yes, that’s right – “Sumbitches.” Why are they called that? As How I Met Your Mother fans know, in the final season, ‘the Mother’ meets a stressed out Lily on the train and calms her down with these chocolate and caramel cookies they named “sumbitches.”

But no joke, these are the best cookies I’ve ever made from scratch! I’ve made them as the original recipe dictates as well as by substituting chocolate chips in place of the Rolos. You could even add chocolate chips and chopped Rolos for even more chocolatey caramel deliciousness! The original recipe says to put one whole Rolo in the middle of the cookie, but I’ve found that to be more time consuming. Much quicker to throw in some chocolate chips rather than shape the dough around each Rolo.

“Sumbitch” Cookies from HIMYM

Ingredients:

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup 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 Rolos (about), chopped
1 cup chocolate chips

Directions:

Beat the butter, sugar, brown sugar and peanut butter at medium speed until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla, beat until blended. Stir in the baking soda, salt, and flour to butter mixture, beating until blended. Fold in chocolate chips and chopped Rolos. Cover and chill for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 F. Using a small cookie scoop, form the dough into balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake 13-15 minutes until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer to wire racks.

Something I’ve noticed while making these cookies is that when they come out of the oven, they are still kind of soft, so be careful not to burn them because they don’t look done enough.

What variation are you most excited to try? Rolos and chocolate chips? Just chocolate chips? Just Rolos? I’ve even made them with cinnamon chips… and they were pretty dang good!

Why yes, that IS an oven mitt with a cat on it! My friend Emily who is also cat-obsessed gave that to me for my birthday this summer! Best thing ever…
