Friday Night Goodness

And, no, that doesn’t necessarily include movies. But this friday night, it included cookies I was eyeing most of this week. The picture on BHG was much better looking than mine, but hey. I never claim to be anything other than an amateur. So, after finishing my last day of teaching, making a bank/coffee/pick up my best friend run, I skipped home to my oven and made cookies. What, you may ask are these wonderful cookies? Well, I’m so glad you asked. They are Peanut Butter Munchies. Even as I sit here on Saturday night, eating these delicious cookies, they’re still crazy moist. These are so far beyond a make again recipe, it isn’t even funny! Pardon the blurry photos. I didn’t notice til I got it on my computer.

1 1/2 C flour
1/2 C unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 C butter, softened
1/2 C granulated sugar
1/2 C brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 T milk
1 t vanilla

3/4 C powdered sugar
1/2 C peanut butter

granulated sugar for sprinkling

Well, first things first! Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. In a bowl, stir together flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda. Find it a safe home on your cabinet. Then, in a bowl, beat together the butter, 1/2 c granulated sugar, brown sugar, and 1/4 C peanut butter. (Yes there is peanut butter in the chocolate dough. Amazingness, y’all!) Add the egg, milk, and vanilla. (Just throwing it out there, it works just as well with water.) The original recipe demands to mix in as many dry ingredients as possible with the mixer, but this is a heavy batter, so use your bakerly discretion. Either way, get those dry ingredients in that dough! For the chocolate dough, form them into 32 balls about 1 1/4 inch in diameter. Or, if you’re like me, think, “Now how big of a cookie do I want to eat?” and form accordingly. šŸ™‚ Put the dough in a safe place away from test tasters.

For the pb filling, mix together the 1/2 pb and the powdered sugar. Form those into the same amount of balls as you did the chocolate dough.

Flatten a chocolate ball and put the pb filling in the middle. Mold the chocolate dough around it. Voila! A surprise for the unsuspecting cookie eater. šŸ™‚ Dip a fork in granulated sugar and crisscross it like a pb cookie. Bake each tray for 8 minutes. Enjoy your delicious reese’s style cookie! Don’t forget to share. šŸ˜‰
