This is an amazing chocolate cookie with peanut butter filling in the center.

You'll need:
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
1 egg
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter

Cookie dough:
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.

Filling:
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.

Enjoy :)
I've actually made this before. Canadian Living Magazine published an insert called &quot;Bake Fest&quot; back in 2008 where this recipe appears under the name &quot;Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies&quot;.&nbsp;<br> <br> I have the Bake Fest insert from that year, and I noticed that you made a <u>very big error</u> in your directions. So I'm not sure how &quot;yousouf&quot; was able to make this recipe successfully.<br> <br> Your directions state to mix all the dry ingredients (intended for the cookie dough base) with the filling, which would not work. You'd end up with a very wet and unusable &quot;cookie dough&quot;. Also, I don't imagine you'd get 1 tablespoon of this wet mixture to form around a 1 inch dry ball since the filling got all of your dry ingredients.<br> <br> You can see the insert and the recipe for yourself <a href="http://www.scribd.com/doc/12101902/Canadian-Living-Bake-Fest-Recipes-Booklet-2008" rel="nofollow">at this link</a>. It appears on page 15.
I seen my error after I had posted my previous comment.<br><br>The part where it says to &quot;stir the flour mixture in to the wet ingredients until well blended&quot; goes with the cookie dough.<br><br>Simple mistake of writting.
Mouth watering! Looks so yummy! Thanks for sharing.<br>Sunshiine
