I had the honor of making these for one of my coworker’s surprise baby shower. We set up the conference room with flowers and gifts and desserts for a 2pm “event planning meeting”. 2 pm wasn’t the best timing because the minute all of us were done with lunch we just sat at our desks antsy for cookies and cupcakes.
These cookies aren’t going to win any beauty pageants but they taste good and remind me of the ones I used to get at Ms. Fields, when I was little and a huge cookie was an acceptable midday snack. Another coworker went all out and painted these precious baby shoes.
The whole thing was just so damn cute.
Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies
1 ½ cup flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup peanut butter
4 tablespoons butter
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. Whisk flour and baking soda together and set aside. In a large bowl combine peanut butter, sugars, and butter and beat until fluffy. Add in eggs and vanilla extract and mix well. In batches, add flour mixture until combined. Roll into balls, arrange on baking sheet and press down with fork (I sprinkled mine with salt). Bake for 12-14 minutes.
In double boiler, melt chocolate chips and dip cooled cookies until halfway covered.
