Introduction: Chocolate Peanut Butter Filled

Picture of Chocolate Peanut Butter Filled

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 "Bake Fest" back in 2008 where this recipe appears under the name "Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies". 

I have the Bake Fest insert from that year, and I noticed that you made a very big error in your directions. So I'm not sure how "yousouf" was able to make this recipe successfully.

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 "cookie dough". 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.

You can see the insert and the recipe for yourself at this link. It appears on page 15.

I seen my error after I had posted my previous comment.

The part where it says to "stir the flour mixture in to the wet ingredients until well blended" goes with the cookie dough.

Simple mistake of writting.
