Ingredients

Cookie

3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate, melted, cooled slightly

Topping

1/2 cup sugar
48 milk chocolate candy stars or kisses

Directions

Combine butter, 1/2 cup sugar and brown sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking soda and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.

Remove half of dough; set aside. Add peanut butter to remaining dough in bowl. Continue beating until well mixed. Remove peanut butter dough from bowl; wrap in plastic food wrap. Place reserved half of dough into bowl; add melted chocolate. Continue beating until well mixed. Wrap chocolate dough in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate both doughs 2 hours or until firm.

Heat oven to 375°F.  

Place 1/2 cup sugar in bowl; set aside.

Press about 1/2 teaspoon of each dough together to create marbled effect; roll into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in sugar. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until set and cookies just begin to crack.

Press 1 chocolate star in center of each cookie immediately. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling racks.  Cool completely



Recipe Tip

Chocolate candies will melt after pressing onto hot cookies. To cool chocolate quickly, refrigerate cookies about 20 minutes until chocolate is firm.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

This cookie was delicious with a mild mix of peanut butter and chocolate.
I AND OTHER'S I SHARED WITH, FOUND THE CHOC. TOO BITTER. IF I TRIED THEM AGAIN, I WOULD USE SEMI-SWEET. CAN'T REALY TASTE THE PEANUT BUTTER. ONE OF MY FRIEND'S SAID THEY WERE MISSING SOMETHING. WE WERE NOT TOO IMPRESSED WITH THIS RECIPE.
