2. in a large bowl, beat the butter until smooth, then add in the peanut butter and beat until well-blended. beat in the sugars and then the eggs, one at a time. gradually beat in the dry ingredients.

3. shape into 1-1.5″ balls and bake for about 12 minutes. makes about 3 dozen cookies.

for the coating:

1 stick butter (you can use more or less depending on how thick you want the chocolate to be)

1. while the cookies are cooling, melt the stick of butter and chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. stir until smooth, and then stir in the vanilla extract.
