Peanut Butter Cookies

The other day I had a craving for cookies. Naturally, I turned to the BHG archives. When I saw this classic recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies, my mouth watered in anticipation.

I knew the recipe would be delicious, but I wanted to give it the star treatment. Since, chocolate goes perfectly with peanut butter, I decided to dip half of each cookie in melted chocolate. Everything is better dipped in chocolate, right?

I followed the original recipe. However, I left out the chopped peanuts so I could use them later for decoration along with the chocolate.

Once the cookies were baked and cooled. I got my chocolate mixture ready. To dip all of the cookies, you will need:
3 cups chocolate chips (I used a mix of milk and semi-sweet chocolate chips.)
1 tablespoon shortening

In a double boiler, melt the chips and the shortening until smooth.- The shortening prevents the cooled chocolate from getting too hard.

Now you’re ready to dip the cookies. Line your countertop with wax paper and place the crushed peanuts In a bowl.

Finally, dip half of each cookie in the chocolate; then roll the edge into your peanuts. Set on the wax paper to cool. (For variety, also feel free to roll some of the cookies in brown sprinkles.)

And that’s it. A classic cookie with a twist. Aren’t they beautiful? Let me tell you, these certainly satisfied my craving.

Again, you can find the peanut butter cookie recipe here. Enjoy!
