Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookie--Blue Ribbon Winner from the Arizona State Fair

These, in a word, are incredible. Recipe
from Maria Baldwin of Mesa, AZ (although I
have embellished it a bit--a friend of mine
says that it is completely impossible for me
to follow a recipe).


1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 squares (2 oz.) unsweetened chocolate
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter or shortening
2 eggs
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups plus 2 tbls. a.p. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda

3/4 cup finely chopped peanuts
36 miniature Peanut Butter Cups, frozen and
1 cup peanut butter baking chips
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips.

350F. oven. Makes 36 cookies.

Combine chocolate in bowl and microwave at
50% for about 2 minutes, stir and repeat
until smooth and melted (or do it the
old-fashioned double boiler way if you
prefer). Cool slightly.

Combine sugar and fat in large bowl. Beat at
medium speed with elec. mixer until blended
and crumbly. Beat in eggs, one at a time,
then salt and vanilla. Reduce speed to low.
Add chocolate slowly. Mix until well
blended. Stir in flour and soda with spoon
until well blended.

Shape dough into 1 1/4 inch balls. Roll in
chopped peanuts. Place 2 inches apart on
ungreased baking sheets.

Bake at 350F. for 8-10 minutes or until set.
Press a frozen (important) peanut butter cups
into the center of each cookie immediately
upon removing them from the oven. Press
cookies up against peanut butter cup if
desired for appearance, but, do not touch the
peanut butter cup again since it is now
melted, it must remain intact. Cool

Melt the peanut butter chips and drizzle back
and forth over the cookies using a parchment
pouch or plastic bag with a little snip off
the corner. Repeat with the chocolate, only
drizzling at another angle from the peanut

These go fast.
