Tasty Tuesday:Peanut Butter Prints

Somehow I didn't have time to post this yesterday. Art has a Pot Luck at work once a month to celebrate everyone's birthday in that month and once again we volunteered to do cookies. Chelsea wanted to try something new (I never do that when I am cooking for someone else) but she dug out my Cookie Lover's cookbook and found a recipe that we had all of the ingredients for. I wish I would have taken a picture to post because they turned out really good. We made a double batch so we could have some too.

Peanut Butter Prints

1/2 C sugar
1/2 C butter
1 square unsweetened baking chocolate melted and slightly cooled
1 egg yolk
1 TBSP milk
1 1/4 C flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 C miniature candy coated semisweet chocolate chips (we just used regular chocolate chips)
1/3 C creamy peanut butter

1/3 C semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 tsp vegetable shortening

Heat oven to 350. In a large mixing bowl combine sugar, butter, melted chocolate, egg yolk, milk, and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until well blended. Add flour and salt. Beat at low speed until soft dough forms. Stir in candy coated chips.
Shape dough into 1 in. balls and place 2 in. apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Indent top of cookie with thumb. Bake 8-12 minutes or until set. Immediately indent cookies again. Cool completely. Spoon about 1/2 tsp of peanut butter into each thumb print.
In a 1 quart saucepan combine drizzle ingredients. Melt over medium heat stirring constantly. Drizzle mixture over peanut butter. Let dry before storing.

Makes 2 1/2 dozen cookies.

Tip: Use end of a spoon to make indentation in hot cookies.
