Double Delight Peanut Butter Cookies

This recipe originated from a Pillsbury bake off, and it has been circulating around on a few blogs I read, so I thought I would try it out, since I love the magic middle cookies, I thought these would be a great twist, and besides I LOVE peanut butter cookies. They were sure to not dissapoint, as I am sure you too will find out, they are fairly quick when you use the pre-made cookie dough, you can also make this using your favorite PB cookie recipe, and it would be great, but the pre-made dough just cuts down on the time. It would be a great one to have your kids help with as well.

  • 1/4 cup dry roasted peanuts, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 roll Pillsbury refigerated peanut butter cookie dough, well chilled
  • non-stick cooking spray
  1. Heat oven to 375* F. In small bowl, mix chopped peanuts, granulated sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
  2. In another small bowl, stir peanut butter and powdered sugar until completely blended. Shape mixture into 24 (1 inch) balls.
  3. Cut roll of cookie dough into 12 slices. Cut each slice in half crosswise to make 24 pieces; flatten slightly. Shape 1 cookie dough piece around 1 peanut butter ball, covering completely. Repeat with remaining dough and balls.
  4. Roll each covered ball in peanut/sugar mixture; gently pat mixture completely onto balls. On ungreased large cookie sheets, place balls 2 inches apart. Spray bottom of drinking glass with non-stick cooking spray; flatten each ball to 1/2 inch thickness with bottom of glass. Sprinkle remaining peanut/sugar mixture evenly on tops of flattened cookies; gently press into dough.
  5. Bake 7 - 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Store tightly covered.
Makes 24 "gooey-in-the-middle" cookies!
