Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

Baking mix makes these soft, moist cookies a snap to stir-up, yet they're pretty enough for parties. "I'm often asked to bring them to wedding and baby showers, and they're popular around the holiday's, too. I sometimes mix the dough the day before and chill it until I have to bake the cookies."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min. YIELD:30 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups biscuit/baking mix
  • 3/4 to 1 pound milk chocolate candy coating, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon shortening

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the peanut butter, milk, egg and vanilla; beat until smooth. Gradually stir in biscuit mix and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • 2. Shape into 1-in. balls and place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten each ball with the bottom of a glass. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.
  • 3. In a microwave, melt candy coating and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip each cookie halfway into chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets; let stand until set. Yield: about 5 dozen.
