6  tb  Butter
3/4  c  Peanut butter, chunk style
1/2  c  Brown sugar, firm packed
1/3  c  Sugar
1    Egg
1  c  Flour, all purpose, unsifted
1/4  ts  Baking soda
1/8  ts  Baking powder
1/8  ts  Cinnamon
2/3  c  Peanuts,unsalted, chopped
6    Chocolate squares(semisweet)
1  tb  Shortening
1  tb  Corn syrup, light

Grease 2 large baking sheets. In large bowl, with mixer, beat butter, peanut butter, and brown and granulated sugars until well combined; beat in egg. Slowly beat in flour, bake soda, bake powder, and cinnamon just until combined to make soft dough. Form dough into 40 1-in. balls (about 2 t dough per cookie). Roll balls in peanuts until coated. Place balls on greased bake sheets about 2 in. apart and press to form 2 in. rounds. When most cookies are shaped, heat oven to 350 bake 6-8 min or until cookies are lightly browned on edges. Cool completely on wire racks. In top of double boiler over simmering water, melt chocolate and shortening; stir in corn syrup until well combined. Dip each cookie halfway into chocolate mixture and place on baking sheets in single layer; freeze until chocolate hardens. Store cookies in airtight container in freezer until ready to use.
