Peanut Butter Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

Peanut Butter Stuffed Chocolate Cookies - Buns in My Oven

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup margarine, softened
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg

For filling:
3/4 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a small bowl mix together the flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda. In a large bowl, beat together the sugars, margarine, and 1/4 cup of peanut butter until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla and egg. Slowly mix in flour mixture. Set aside.

For the peanut butter filling, combine confectioners’ sugar and 3/4 cup peanut butter. Beat together well. Roll filling into 30 small balls. Try to keep the balls all the same size – around 1 inch.
For each cookie use 1 tablespoon of chocolate dough and roll into a ball. It helps to flour your hands first. Squish ball of chocolate dough flat and place peanut butter ball in the center. 

Wrap the chocolate dough up and around the peanut butter ball to completely cover. Place 2 inches apart on a baking sheet. Dip the bottom of a glass into white sugar and use the cup to lightly flatten the cookie balls. Bake for 7-9 minutes.
