  • Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In large mixer bowl, beat butter, brown sugar and peanut butter until well blended.

  • Gradually add to peanut butter mixture.
  • Shape dough into 1 inch balls; roll in chopped peanuts.
  • Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until cookies are just set.
  • Press thumb gently in center of each cookie; cool slightly.
  • Remove from cooking sheet and cool completely.
  • Prepare thumbprint filling:
  • In small mixer bowl; beat cream cheese, corn syrup and vanilla until well blended.
  • Add melted chocolate chips, beating well.
  • Gradually add powdered sugar; beating until blended and smooth. (Makes about 1 1/3 cups of filling).
  • Pipe about 1/2 teaspoon filling into each thumbprint.
  • Note: On cooking time I just put 10 minutes because it depends on how many cookies you are able to put on each cookie sheet; how many cookie sheets you have; if you have a double oven, etc.
