Cream first 6 ingredients until well blended. Add salt and soda, mixing well. Stir in flour forming dough.
I use my melon baller oftentimes for scooping uniform amounts of dough.
This dough has excellent consistency for rolling. I like to be sure to coat balls uniformly and generously with sugar. This makes the cookies extra good!
You will be baking sugared dough balls 8 min. @ 350°, remove & IMMEDIATELY be pressing chocolate stars into each hot cookie, then returning to oven to bake 1 more minute before cooling on wire rack.
Bake 8 minutes at 350°. Have chocolate stars handy.
Cool slightly then carefully remove with spatula and transfer to wire rack to finish cooling. It will take some time for chocolate to harden. Sometimes I speed that up by placing in frig or freezer.
Crisp outside, soft inside.... Peanut butter and chocolate combination make these very popular cookies. They freeze well too.
