I have had cookies in the past that are PB and chocolate. They have been very dry. I decided to make a chocolate cookie dough that wasn't so dry. I added a peanut butter filling to them and put a chocolate topping on top. I got a very awesome result. Enjoy with a nice glass of milk or cup of coffee. They are perfectly Yummy!
1Heat oven to 350 degree's.
Make filling. :
Melt butter in microwave just until melted. Add in the peanut butter and mix until smooth. Add in powdered sugar. stir until well combined. Gorm in to a ball. Place in refrigerator to cool.
2Cookies : place 1/2 cup of butter +2 tablespoons in a bowl. Add sugar and beat well.
3Add an egg and vanilla and continue to beat until well combined.
4Sift the flour sugar baking soda baking powder salt and Cocoa into the bowl with the egg and sugar.
5Beat until well combined. Form dough into a ball with your hands.
6Place chocolate chips in a bowl stir in 3?tablespoons of cream. Heat in microwave just until melted mix well.
7Break off pieces of cookie dough about the size of a meatball or jaw breaker. About 1 1/2 inches across to form a ball. Place balls on parchment lined sheet pan.
8Press indentation into center of each cookie with thumb. Place about a 3/4 teaspoon size of peanut butter mixture into indentation and above indentation on top of cookie.Press to flatten peanut butter mixture on top of cookie.
9Place a little bit of the chocolate mixture over the peanut butter mixture and spread. Place in oven for about 10- 15 minutes. Cookies may not seem done but they will be. Remove from oven and let cool on pan. If you bake them too much they will be dry. Remove from pan when they are cool. Serve and enjoy!
