Choclate Peanut Butter Cookies
The next batch I make I'm going to half the peanut butter filling, but over all the first batch of cookies were yummy.
These are definitely a good after school treat or a treat for someone that can't get enough cookies! (Really who can get enough cookies?)
1 box Duncan Hines® Milk Chocolate Premium Brownie Mix
1/4 cup butter
4 oz of softened cream cheese
Peanut Butter Filling:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup peanut butter
In medium bowl, beat brownie mix, softened butter, softened cream cheese and egg. Mix either by hand or by using a mixer.
Roll 1 tablespoon of dough into balls and place on lightly greased or parchment lined cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Should make 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
In a small bowl, mix powdered sugar and peanut butter together and roll into small balls using about 1 teaspoon. Press peanut butter balls into surface of uncooked brownie cookies and slightly flatten cookie. Bake for 12 minutes or until edges are set. Cookies may appear slightly under cooked, but do not overbake. Cool on cookie sheets for about 3 mins and transfer to wire rack.
