Number of Servings: 30

Ingredients

    2 sticks (1 cup) of light butter
    1 cup of Splenda
    1 large egg
    1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
    1/2 tsp. kosher salt
    3 cups whole wheat flour
    1/2 cup Jif Natural (smooth) peanut butter
    1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
    2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions

1. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar. Beat until smooth. Add in egg and beat until well incorporated, scraping down the bowl, if necessary. Add in vanilla. Beat until smooth. With mixer on low, add in salt and flour. Mix until completely incorporated and dough is uniform. Shape dough into a cylinder with a diameter of about 2-3 inches. Wrap in parchment paper and freeze for at least 25 minutes.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice dough into 1/8 inch disks and place on baking sheets, about a half inch apart. Once you have made 30 cookies, wrap up the cookie dough, freeze, and save for another time. Bake for 8 minutes. Place on a cooling rack and let cool completely.

3. Mix together peanut butter and powdered sugar. Form into small disks and press onto cookies. Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for 30 second intervals, and mix well after each interval. Coat cookies completely in chocolate and lift out with a fork. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and let set, or freeze to speed up the process.

    These Have More Calories Than A Normal Tagalong. Normal have 140 in Two Cookies. These Have Almost 180 For ONE!! Looks Delicious, But No Way I'm Gonna Make These! - 2/28/13

  • FYI- Did a little research on my own. The calories are NOT correct for this recipe. If you click on the nutritional breakdown it has the chocolate chips as 75 cal., but the Nestle website has the cal. as 70 per serving. - 3/5/13

  • Think there might be a calculation error as this cookie dough makes many more than 30 small cookies. - 3/1/13

  • I agree with the other comment. I have nutrition figured for 1 cookie (the actual GS ones), and it is much better than this. Using ritz crackers would be better, but not nearly as good as the real thing. I'll stick with my yearly fix thank you very much. - 2/28/13
