Ingredients

For the cookies

  • 1/2 Cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Cup butter
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract, plus 2 teaspoons
  • 2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Cup creamy peanut butter

For the chocolate dip

  • 1 Cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 Tablespoons whipping cream
  • 4-5 Tablespoons warm water

Directions

For the cookies

Place ½ cup powdered sugar and butter in a medium bowl, and cream with an electric mixer on medium until light and creamy. Add 1 tablespoon vanilla and flour, and beat until combined. Wrap dough in plastic, and place in refrigerator for 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Roll out dough to a ¼-inch thickness. Using a 2-inch round cookie cutter, shape cookies. Create a medium-shallow well with the back of a spoon (it will later be filled with peanut butter). Bake for about 10 minutes. Cool cookies on a wire rack.

Place peanut butter with 2 teaspoons vanilla extract in a saucepan and heat on low until it becomes soft. Stir to combine. Watch the peanut butter so it doesn’t cook or burn.

For the chocolate dip

Place the chocolate and heavy cream in a bowl over simmering water. Slowly stir to combine. Add water 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing after each addition until mixture becomes pourable. Set aside.

Assemble the cookies:

Spoon the peanut butter filling into shallow cookie wells. Place the cookies in refrigerator for 1 hour for peanut butter filling to harden.

Remove cookies from refrigerator. Pour chocolate on the top of each cookie, or use a spatula to spread.
