Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

November 27, 2012 — 3 Comments

These are my family’s favorite cookies.  If you love chocolate and peanut butter, you’re sure to love them too.

Ingredients:

1 cup butter, softened                         2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 cup sugar                                       3 cups flour

1 cup packed brown sugar                  1 cup baking cocoa

2 cup creamy peanut butter, divided     1 teaspoon baking soda

2 eggs, lightly beaten                         1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar

Directions:

1.  In large mixing bowl, cream butter, sugars, and 1/2 cup peanut butter.

2.  Add eggs and vanilla; mix well.

3.  Combine flour, cocoa, and baking soda; add to creamed mixture and mix well.

4.  Put this mixture in the fridge to chill for about an hour.

5.  Blend confectioners sugar with remaining 1 1/2 cups peanut butter until smooth.

6.  Divide and roll peanut butter mixture into 48 balls.

7.  Remove chocolate dough from fridge and divide into 48 pieces; flatten each into a 3 inch circle.

8.  Place 1 peanut butter ball on each circle; bring edges over to completely cover it.  Dough will probably crack.

9.  Place cookies with seam down on ungreased cookie sheets.

10.  Flatten each cookie slightly with the bottom of a glass that has been dipped in sugar.

11.  Bake in preheated 375° oven for 7-9 minutes.  Do not over-bake.

Note:  If using a cookie scoop, 1 level scoop of chocolate to 1/3 level scoop of peanut butter mixture comes out about right.

Makes 48 cookies
