Wow

Picture 010

After eating dinner about an hour ago, I asked Kyle what he wanted for dessert.  When he said he didn’t know, this recipe immediately came to mind!  It’s like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup… but better!  I will absolutely be making these again, and I think it may also be fun to try different flavored centers.

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter

In a small bowl  blend flour, cocoa and baking soda.  Mix until well blended.

In a large bowl beat sugar, butter, and 1/4 cup peanut butter until light and fluffy.  Add vanilla and egg, beat.  Stir in flour mixture until blended and set aside.  (Let’s not act like I actually mix the flour mixture separately.  I’m not washing an extra bowl.)

Make the filling: combine the powdered sugar and 3/4 cup peanut butter and blend well.

Roll the filling into 30 – 1 inch balls.  For each cookie, with floured hands, shape about 1 tbs of dough around peanut butter ball, covering completely.  Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet, and flatten with glass dipped in powdered sugar.

Bake at 375 degrees for 7-9 minutes.  When cookies are done they should be set and slightly cracked.
