    invictus's Note:

    *Updated 3/8 with changes based on making the recipe* These are amazing. This version is rich and cream and buttery and melt-in-your mouth good. I would take one of these over a box of the commercial ones any day.

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric




    • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate
    • 4 tablespoons butter


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Mix in flour, baking powder and salt at a low speed, followed by the vanilla and milk. The dough should come together into a soft ball but it will be crumbly.
    3. 3
      Take a tablespoon full of dough and flatten it into a disc about 1/4-inch thick. I found it was easiest doing this in the palm of my hand. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and repeat with remaining dough. Cookies will not spread too much, so you can squeeze them in more than you would for chocolate chip cookies.
    4. 4
      Bake cookies for 9 minutes, until bottoms and the edges are lightly browned and cookies are set.
    5. 5
      Immediately after removing cookies from the oven, use your thumb or a small spoon to make a depression in the center of each cookie. (I am still debating as to whether this is a necessary step.).
    6. 6
      Cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
    7. 7
      In a small bowl, whisk together peanut butter, confectioners’ sugar, salt and vanilla. When the mixture has come together, heat it in the microwave for 30 to 45 seconds at a time, then stir. Heat until it is very, very soft. Let cool slightly and spoon a generous dome of the filling into each cookie’s “thumbprint”. Alternately you could use a piping bag but I did not find this necessary.
    8. 8
      Chill cookies with filling for 20-30 minutes, or until the peanut butter is firm.
    9. 9
      Melt the chocolate and butter in a small double boiler until melted.
    10. 10
      Dip chilled cookies into chocolate with a fork, allowing theexcess to drip off, and place on a sheet of parchment paper to let the cookies set.

      The taste of these was pretty good, but they just didn't really work out for me. I made a half recipe and the chocolate was so thick I only really had enough to coat 5 cookies. The rest just got a dollop on top. Also, I used natural peanut butter and it was way too thick, even after heating, to really spread over the top. Thank you for giving me a new cookie to try! Made for PRMR tag.

      The kids and I made these this morning and are taking them to a birthday part this afternoon. Of course we had to taste first. It has been along time since I had tagalongs, so can't be sure how close they taste. Doesn't matter though because they sure are good. Also, not as hard to make as I thought. Thanks Heidi.
