Peanut Butter Stuffed Cookies Recipe
Makes 12 Large Cookies


For Filling
1 c. smooth peanut butter
1/2 c. powdered sugar

For Cookies
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1/2 c. (1 stick) Butter, softened
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar (plus more for rolling)
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1-1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. kosher salt

Preheat oven to 375 and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.

Make filling: In a medium bowl, combine peanut butter and powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Scoop into small balls (about 1 1/2") and freeze until ready to use.

Make cookies: In a large bowl, combine peanut butter, butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar and beat with a hand mixer on medium until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and mix until thoroughly combined. Add flour, baking soda and salt and mix until just combined. Scoop heaping tablespoon of the cookie dough and flatten into a flat, pancake-like circle. Place the frozen peanut butter ball on top. Bring the edges of the dough around the frozen peanut butter ball and pinch the edges together to seal, adding more dough if necessary to cover the frozen peanut butter completely. Roll stuffed cookie dough ball in sugar and place on baking sheet. Repeat until all dough is used, spacing the cookies about 2 apart. Bake until the cookies are golden on the bottom, about 12-15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
