This is the cookie you need to make when you're stuck deciding between two classics - chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies. With a delicious peanut butter filling, these peanut butter stuffed chocolate chip cookies are so, so good - and you never have to pick just one type of cookie again! Making a peanut butter filled cookie may seem intimidating at first - but I promise it is easier than it looks! These cookies are both delicious while still warm and the peanut butter is melty, and also later once the peanut butter filling has firmed up!
The ingredients in these peanut butter filled cookies are just the standard cookie ingredients found in most homeamde cookies:
step one: Prepare you peanut butter filling by mixing the peanut butter with the icing sugar until completely smooth, the consistency should be almost like playdough
step two: Form the peanut butter filling into 24 equal shaped balls and place in freezer to firm up while you prepare the chocolate chip cookie dough - the colder the peanut butter is the easier it is to work with
step three: make the chocolate chip cookie dough by creaming together the butter and sugars until liught and fluffy, about 3-4 mintues
step four: beat in the egg and vanilla, followed by the flour, baking soda, and salt
step five: stir in the chocolate chips, then portion the dough into 24 equal sized balls
step six: press the chilled peanut butter filling into the center of each chocolate chip cookie dough ball, then pinch the edges together to seal and gently roll the dough until it is a sphere
step seven: place cookie dough onto lined baking sheet and bake at 350 F for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are just golden
There are a few things that all my cookie recipes have in common that make them that special homemade type of good:
not too sweet - I have a sweet tooth, but I like to be able to taste something other than just sugar in my treats
soft - this isnt an exact rule, because some cookies are meant to be crunchy (like my shortbread!) but if a cookie is meant to be soft, I want it soft and chewy
perfectly baked - just perfectly golden and cooked through, no one wants to eat a burnt (or partially raw!) cookie
interesting flavor combinations - I don't mean wild or super crazy flavours that are unheard of, but combining two classic flavors like I have done in this recipe guarantees a crowd-pleasing cookie
Preheat oven to 350 F, line a baking sheet with parchent paper and set aside
In a small bowl, mix peanut butter and powdered sugar until completely smooth, the texture will be somewhat like playdough
Portion the peanut butter mixture into 24 equal balls, then place into freezer while you prepare the chocolate chip cookie dough
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy
Beat in the vanila and egg until completely mixed through
Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix well
Stir in the chocolate chips, then portion the cookie dough into 24 equal cookie dough balls
Get the frozen peanut butter filling, and push one into the center of each cookie dough ball, bringing the edges of the cookie dough around the peanut butter and pinching to close
Bake in preheated oven 10-12 minutes, or until cookies are lightly golden
Allow to cool about 2-3 minutes on baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely
