I found this on evanovich.com (a website for an author I like) but things don't stay up on their website for long. Amelia loves peanut butter, so I thought we'd make these once we have a kitchen again. :-) We'll probably cut down the sugar some though, use some whole wheat flour and skip the chocolate because Amelia doesn't really like chocolate. Anyway.

Sinfully Sweet Sixteen Cookies
Peanut Butter Cookies - half dipped in milk chocolate

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
2 eggs
2 + 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 + 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 bag Resse's chips (They are where you find the choc. chips)
1 bag milk chocolate (the kind for making candy)

Mix the first 5 ingredients together in one bowl. In another bowl mix the next 4 ingredients and combine. Then add Resse's chips to the mix.

Shape dough into 3/4 inch balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 7 min. until they just start to turn light brown.

Let cool.

Melt milk chocolate in a double boiler or the microwave.

Dip the cool cookies half way into the melted chocolate and place on wax paper to cool (the chocolate will harden).

Then store in a air tight container.
