Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Cookies – {Guest Post}

Ingredients:

Cookies:
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg

Filling:
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper, or use non stick cookie sheets.
In a bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda. Set aside.
In another bowl, mix butter with white sugar until fluffy, add brown sugar.
Mix in peanut butter until well incorporated. Then add vanilla and egg. Blend well.
Using a spatula or a wooden spoon, gently mix in flour mixture.
Shape dough into 3/4inch balls and place on cookie sheets.

For peanut butter filling, mix powdered sugar, vanilla, and peanut butter (you can use a mixer)
and shape into 1/4inch balls. Flatten each chocolate dough ball and top with a peanut butter ball. Wrap chocolate dough over the peanut butter filling so that it completely covers the filling. Roll into balls again and flatten. Bake for 8 minutes or until just set and surface is slightly cracked. Cool cookies for 1 minute before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.

  • perhaps i am not understanding this, but how does the chocolate part rise and cover the peanut butter part? id love to make these, if they come out looking like the top picture! the only way i can think of it is putting the PB part on top and it will be just PB on top and chocolate on bottom?

  • Fold the chocolate part over the peanut butter ball, and roll the entire thing into a ball, then flatten it. It’s similar to making a dumpling with folding the dough over the filling, except you are creating more of a cookie shape by rolling it into a ball again and then flattening it.

  • Just made these. Delicious and well worth the tedium of rolling etc. The end of the method is missing here but you will find it at the Midnight baker site.Yum Yum.

  • This are amazing!!! I flattened them a bit too much & should have baked them a couple of minutes less, but heaven nonetheless. I also ate the leftover pb mixture – yum!
