A crispy peanut butter cookie with a soft center that is dipped in dark chocolate and sprinkled with little candies.
Serves: 38 cookies
Ingredients
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 cup dark chocolate melting wafers
  • sprinkles (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  3. In a bowl, add peanut butter, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. Beat until combined. Beat in cornstarch.
  4. Roll about a tablespoon size of dough and place on prepared cookie sheet. Gently flatten with your hand. With the tine of the fork, press into the cookie to make a cross pattern. Note: If you are not going to dip the cookies in chocolate, I recommend after you roll the dough into a ball, roll it in a little granulated sugar to add a little more sweetness. Then continue with the directions.
  5. Bake in oven for 7 - 9 minutes, until lightly golden on the bottom. Let cookies cool for 2 minutes and place on a baking rack to cool completely.
  6. Meanwhile in a microwave safe bowl, add chocolate and microwave for 20 seconds, stir and microwave in 10 second increments until chocolate is melted, stirring in between each increment. I found using a pyrex measuring cup worked great and easy for deep dipping.
  7. Dip half the cookie in the melted chocolate and place back on baking sheet. Add sprinkles if desired. Let the cookies sit until chocolate hardens about 45 minutes.
  8. Store in an airtight container with parchment between each layer.
