eggs
1 tsp

2 1/2 c

CHOCOLATE DIP

1 pkg
milk chocolate chips
1 1/2 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare 2 cookie sheets by covering with parchment paper.
2
In large bowl, cream together butter and peanut butter. Add sugars, mix well. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract. Mix in flour. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
3
Roll dough into 1" balls, place about 2" apart on prepared cookie sheets. Using a fork- moistened and dipped in sugar- flatten each cookie and press criss cross pattern into top. Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool for 1 minute on cookie sheet, then remove from pan to finish cooling.
