Mmm cookies

recipe linked from bunsinmyoven.com via allrecipes.com

The recipe:

• 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
• 1/2 cup cocoa powder
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/2 cup white sugar
• 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
• 1/2 cup butter, softened
• 1/4 cup peanut butter
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 egg
• 3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
• 3/4 cup peanut butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a small bowl mix together the flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda. In a large bowl, beat together the sugars, butter, and 1/4 cup of peanut butter until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla and egg. Slowly mix in flour mixture. Set aside.

For the peanut butter filling, combine confectioners’ sugar and 3/4 cup peanut butter. Beat together well. Roll filling into 30 small balls. Try to keep the balls all the same size – around 1 inch.

For each cookie use 1 tablespoon of chocolate dough and roll into a ball. It helps to flour your hands first. Squish ball of chocolate dough flat and place peanut butter ball in the center. Wrap the chocolate dough up and around the peanut butter ball to completely cover. Place 2 inches apart on a baking sheet. Dip the bottom of a glass into white sugar and use the cup to lightly flatten the cookie balls. Bake for 7-9 minutes.

They were a bit awkward to put together, the whole wrapping the chocolate dough around the peanut butter middle, but they taste quite lovely. Very peanut buttery. Yummers.
