Peanut Butter Munchies


I got this recipe a few years ago from This Site. They are a little more time consuming to make than your average cookie, but it's well worth the effort. Here goes.
In a large mixing bowl, combined these ingredients:
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 stick softened butter
1 egg
1 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
Add in:
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups flour
Stir until thoroughly combined and form into balls. You will have between 24 and 32 balls.
In another bowl, combine 1/2 cup peanut butter with 3/4 cup powdered sugar. Form into smaller balls, equal to the number you have of the chocolate mixture.
Slightly flatten your chocolate ball, place the peanut butter ball on top, and form the chocolate ball around the peanut butter ball. Repeat with the remaining balls of dough.
Place on a greased cookie sheet. Lightly flatten cookie with the bottom of a glass dipped in 2 Tbsp of white sugar. This will give the cookies a slight sprinkling of sugar on their tops. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes, until the tops are slightly cracked. Remove from oven and cool. (Note: They don't need to cook for long. Trust me. 8 minutes is enough. Any longer, you will have a hard HARD cookie.)
I will try to post a recipe everyday this week. Stay tuned! (and please comment if you like the recipes!! It means a lot to me.)

That looks like MY kind of cookie. I may have to stray from my usual cinnamon oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe that Mike always wants me to make. It looks worth the extra work.
