Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies
Recipe Courtesy Of Just Me Cookin
1 cup peanut butter
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups biscuit/baking mix
3/4 to 1 pound milk chocolate candy coating
1 tablespoon shortening
In a mixing bowl, combine peanut butter, milk, egg and vanilla; beat until smooth. Stir in biscuit mix; mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Shape into 1-in. balls and place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten each ball with the bottom of a glass. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.
In a small saucepan over low heat, melt candy coating and shortening. Dip each cookie halfway into chocolate; shake off excess. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets to harden. Makes about 5 dozen.
Note: Milk chocolate confectionery coating is found in the baking section of most grocery stores. It is sometimes labeled “candy coating” and is often sold in bulk packages of 1 to 1-1/2 pounds.
