Ingredients

  • 1 package 15 oz Jif Whips or 15 oz of regular peanut butter**
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 5 ounces of chopped semisweet chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon butter optional -- for softer chocolate

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, stir together all ingredients except for chocolate to form a smooth dough.
  • Using a heaping teaspoon, spoon balls of dough onto cookie sheets. Round off the tops a little bit with your fingertips or the back of a spoon.
  • Bake for about 9 to 11 minutes or until they appear set, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  • Melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave using 50% power and stirring every 30 seconds. Spoon a little chocolate over the top of each cookie.
  • Put the cookies in the refrigerator until the chocolate is set.
  • You can make halve a batch by using 2 tablespoons of beaten egg

Notes

Most peanut butter comes in 15 oz jar, so use all but about 1 1/2 tablespoons or to be more accurate, weigh out 15 oz.
If you want to make the usual type of cookies which spread, use only 1 cup of peanut butter and add 1 teaspoon of baking soda.
For the melted chocolate that goes on top, you can melt the chocolate by itself or add a tablespoon of butter. Butter will give the set chocolate a softer texture, whereas if you just put straight melted chocolate on top the chocolate will be harder.
