1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter
Whisk flour, cocoa powder and baking soda in a bowl.
In a large bowl, beat white and brown sugar, butter and 1/4 cup peanut butter, until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and egg in to the wet ingredients and beat.
Stir in flour mixture until well blended and set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar and 3/4 cup peanut butter and blend well.
Roll the filling into 1 inch balls. For each cookie, flour your hands and shape about 1 TBSP of dough around 1 peanut butter ball, covering the peanut butter filling completely.
Place 2 inches apart on a baking sheet and using the bottom of a glass covered in sugar, flatten the cookie.
Bake at 375 degrees for 7-9 minutes.
When cookies are done, they should be set and slightly cracked.
