Chocolate/Peanut Butter Drop Cookies

1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1 egg
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons butter, softened

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In large bowl, with mixer at medium speed, combine 1 cup flour and the next six ingredients until well mixed.

In small bowl, mix 3 tablespoons of flour and the remaining ingredients until well mixed (mixture will be crumbly).

Drop chocolate dough by teaspoonfuls, 1 inch apart, onto cookie sheet. Top each with 1/2 teaspoon of peanut-butter dough. Dip a fork into flour and press gently across top of each cookie.

Bake 12 minutes or until firm. Move cookies to racks; cool.
