Chocolate-Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies

I like peanut butter…with Jelly, on a sandwich.  I have never been a big fan of it anywhere else.  It’s not that I dislike it, it just doesn’t belong anywhere but on a sandwich…and in these cookies!  If you like peanut butter, and you like cookies, give this a try!  If not, do like I do, make these for the other cookie lovers in your life and relieve yourself from temptation!  These cookies are delectably soft and scrumptious!

How to make Chocolate-Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies

What you need:

½ cup unsalted butter, softened

¾ cup smooth peanut butter

½ cup granulated sugar°°°

½ cup packed brown sugar

1 egg

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

¾ teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon salt

10 or so ounces of melted chocolate to preference

nuts or sprinkles for decoration

What to Do:

Preheat oven to 375°F.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Combine butter and peanut butter; beat with a mixer on medium speed until combined.  Add sugars and beat until fluffy.  Beat in egg.

Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Add flour mixture to peanut butter mixture and beat until just combined.

Refrigerate at least 30 minutes.  Make 1 ½ inch ball and roll into oval shape and place on cooking sheet 1 ½ inches apart.

Using a fork, press flat.

Bake 7-10 minutes, until cookies are golden brown around the edges.

Put on cooling rack and let cool.

Melt chocolate in container acceptable for dipping.

Dip cookies one at a time and place back on cool baking sheet lined with parchment.  After each sheet is filled, sprinkle decorations on the melted chocolate before it hardens.

Continue until all cookies are dipped, and let the chocolate harden.
