Serves: 20
Ingredients
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1½ cups flour
FILLING:
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 2 T. cocoa powder
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
Instructions
  1. Cream butter, sugars, and peanut butter. Add egg and vanilla, mix well.
  2. Add soda and salt and mix well. Add flour and mix until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine butter, cocoa, and powdered sugar, stirring until smooth, to create the filling.
  4. For each cookie, place a scoop of dough in your hand and flatten it a bit. Drop a small amount of chocolate filling in the center, and wrap the edges of the dough up around it. Use a second flattened scoop as a top, seal all the edges (sealing the chocolate inside) and roll into a ball shape.
  5. Roll the dough in sugar and place on baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 11-14 min. Let sit on the baking sheet for 3-4 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.
