12 Days of Christmas Cookies. Day Nine. Peanut Butter Paw Print Cookies.

There are things I like to make at Christmas. Pecan Hedgehogs. The Mozzarella Penguins, This year we are adding Cucumber Trees. And to the cookie list are the Peanut Butter Paw Print Cookies. I found this recipe at Cooking with Carlee.

I used Hershey Kisses instead of the melting chocolate listed in the recipe. The small chips tended to not stay in the cookie during storage but the flavor is really good. I have not be able to eat just one of these.

Peanut Butter Paw Print Cookies

Makes 32 Cookies


1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

2 large eggs

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

48 melting chocolate disks

144 chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter, peanut butter, sugar and brown sugar until smooth and creamy.

Add the eggs and vanilla, stirring to mix.

In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda and salt.

Add flour mixture to peanut butter mixture and mix until just combined.

Scoop slightly rounded tablespoons of dough onto a sheet pan leaving two inches between the balls of dough, a small cookie scoop works well for this.

Roll balls of dough in additional granulated sugar if desired, otherwise roll them between your hands until they are a smooth ball.

Bake for 7-9 minutes.

The cookies should look puffy and soft, but set.

Press 1 chocolate wafer into the lower center portion of each cookie, then add 3 chocolate chips to make a paw shaped pattern.

Move cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Allow chocolate to reset before stacking for storage.
