What's the secret, you ask? Well, hidden inside this modest looking peanut butter cookie is the mother of all peanut butter and chocolate candies...a Reese's Peanut butter cup! Delicious, and every kid dreams of helping you make them once they figure out the 'secret' for themselves!
Heat oven to 375F. Grease baking sheet with Butter Flavor Crisco.
For cookie, combine Butter Flavor Crisco, brown sugar, granulated sugar and peanut butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed of electric mixer until well blended. Beat in egg and vanilla.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Mix into creamed mixture at low speed until just blended.
Form rounded teaspoonfuls of dough around each peanut butter cup. Enclose entirely. Place 2 inches apart on baking sheet.
Bake at 375F for 8 to 10 minutes, or until cookies are just browned. Remove immediately to cooling rack.
For glaze, combine Butter Flavor Crisco, chocolate chips and peanut butter in microwave-safe cup. Microwave at 50% (MEDIUM). Stir after 1 minute. Repeat until smooth (or melt on rangetop in small saucepan on very low heat). Dip tops in chocolate.
Wonderful for a Holiday cookie exchange!
