TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. Bake: 10 min. + freezing YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 ounces dark chocolate candy coating, chopped

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream shortening, peanut butter, 1/2 cup sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
