Chocolate Peanut Butter Filled Cookies


This morning brings preparations for another fund-raising bake sale.  Lucky for Daughter #2, she has a baking beau.  The Frenchman made these tasty morsels for her to sell this morning.


 ¼ cup peanut butter

1 1/2 cups flour

½ cup cocoa powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ cup margarine, softened

½ cup sugar

½ cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 tablespoon nondairy creamer or soy milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

¾ cup powdered sugar

½ cup peanut butter

2 tablespoons sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together flour, cocoa and baking soda. Cream together the margarine, sugar, brown sugar and ½ cup peanut butter until fluffy. Beat in egg, soy milk and vanilla. On low speed, beat in flour mixture. Batter will be thick. Form the dough into 32 balls and set aside.

For filling, stir together powdered sugar and ½ cup peanut butter. Shape this mixture into 32 balls also.

Slightly flatten each chocolate ball and top with peanut butter ball. Pull chocolate dough over peanut butter to cover completely and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Lightly flatten with the bottom of a glass dipped in the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar. Bake for 8 minutes or until just set. Cool on pan 2 minutes before removing to wire rack to finish cooling.
