RECIPE: Peanut Butter Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

I decided to post this recipe just in case any of you are falling short on sugar in your diets. I want to make it clear that this recipe is in no way HEALTHY by any stretch of the word. However, when I mentioned them, so many of you asked for the recipe, I just decided to post it. It's your heart attack, not mine, so here you go! ;)

This recipe is from the Taste of Home Winning Recipes book.

Peanut Butter Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter, divided
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, sugars, and 1/4 cup of the peanut butter. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Combine the flour, cocoa, and baking soda; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Divide into 24 pieces, and flatten each piece into a 3-inch circle.

In a bowl, blend confectioners' sugar with remaining 3/4 cup peanut butter until smooth. Roll into 24 balls, 1 inch each. 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 (I just flattened them with my hands and skipped the sugar--not that it matters!)

Bake at 375 degrees for 7-9 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks to cool. Makes 2 dozen.
