1/4 c

FROSTING

1/2 c

3/4 - 1 c

confectioners' sugar, enough to thicken

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350
2In a large mixing bowl, cream 1 stick of butter, 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, and 1/4 sugar until well blended.

Beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla.
3In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture.

Drop a teaspoonful of dough per cookie onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
4Cool on cookie sheet and then transfer to cooling rack.
5For frosting:

Mix 1 stick of melted butter and 3/4 cup of peanut butter together. Blend in the confectioners' sugar until the mixture is thick enough to be spreadable. I start with about a cup, and go from there.



After the cookies have cooled, spread on the frosting.

Keep in an airtight container.
