Peanut Butter Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

I have a great chocolate cookie recipe that I just can’t stop messing with. My latest, and maybe greatest, variation is this peanut butter stuffed version. The outside cookie is rich and chewy, and the soft peanut butter center is a fun and delicious surprise. Make sure you have a tall glass of milk handy, and a few helpers to make sure you don’t accidentally eat them all yourself.

1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup Smooth Operator peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted

Procedure

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

Take another small spoonful of the chocolate cookie dough, flatten into a disk, and place on top of the peanut butter ball, pressing to seal the top and bottom layers. Repeat with remaining dough.
