Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies Recipe

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

½ cup butter, softened

½ cup sugar

½ cup packed brown sugar

1 cup creamy Jif Creamy Peanut Butter, divided

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 tsp. vanilla

1 ½ cups flour

½ cup baking cocoa

½ tsp. baking soda

¾ cup confectioners’ sugar

In a large bowl, cream butter, sugars and ¼ cup peanut butter.  Add egg and vanilla; mix well.  Combine flour, cocoa and baking soda; add to creamed mixture and mix well.

Blend confectioners’ sugar with remaining peanut butter until smooth.  Roll into 24 balls, 1 inch each.  Divide dough into 24 pieces; flatten each into a 3 inch circle.

Place one peanut butter ball on each circle; bring edges over to completely cover it.  (Dough may crack; reshape cookies as needed.)  Place cookies with seam side down on ungreased baking sheets.  Flatten each cookie slightly with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar.  Bake at 375 F. for 7-9 minutes or until set.              2 dozen
