Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Cookies

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  Peanut Butter and Chocolate is one of my favorite flavor combinations.  And these cookies combined those flavors perfectly.  I was looking for something to bake this week and I really wanted to bake a cookie.  A while back my mom had given me an old recipe book called “Biggest Book of Cookies” so I decided to look through it.  As I was flipping the pages a picture caught my eye.  It was a picture of these cookies and I knew I just had to make them!  My coworkers also really enjoyed these cookies!

Here’s the recipe…

  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • Granulated sugar
  1. In a medium bowl sift together the flour, cocoa powder and baking soda; set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl beat butter, the ½ cup granulated sugar, brown sugar and the ¼ cup peanut butter with an electric mixer until combined, scraping sides of the bowl occasionally.  Beat in the egg, milk and vanilla until combined.  Beat in as much of the flour mixture as you can with the mixer.  Stir in any remaining flour mixture with a wooden spoon.
  3. Shape dough into 1 ¼ inch balls (should have 32); set aside.
  4. For peanut butter filling, in a medium bowl stir together powdered sugar and the ½ cup peanut butter until smooth.
  5. Shape mixture into ¾ inch balls (should have 32).
  6. On a work surface, slightly flatten each chocolate dough ball and top with a peanut butter ball.  Shape the chocolate dough over the peanut butter filling, completely covering the filling.  Roll dough into balls.
  7. Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Lightly flatten with the bottom of a glass dipped in granulated sugar.  Note: So sugar will stick to the glass, first dip the bottom of the glass in the cookie dough.  Next, dip it into the sugar.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes or until just set and surface is slightly cracked.  Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute.  Transfer cookies to a wire rack and let cool.
