Anybody like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups? This is the cookie form! The cookies are soft with the right mix of chocolate and peanut butter and even have the peanut butter filling!
Magic Peanut Butter Middles
Chocolate Cookie Dough:
3 cups flour
1 cup cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tsp. vanilla
Peanut Butter Filling:
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
For chocolate cookie dough sift together flour, cocoa, and baking soda. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl cream sugars with butter and peanut butter. Add vanilla and eggs. Beat well. Slowly add sifted dry ingredients until well incorporated. For peanut butter filling, in another bowl beat together peanut butter and powdered sugar. Divide the chocolate cookie dough and the peanut butter filling into 60 portions each. Roll each portion into a ball. For each cookie, flatten a chocolate ball and place a peanut butter ball in the middle.
Bring up chocolate dough and surround peanut butter filling.
Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly with a glass dipped in sugar (or we use our fingers).
Bake at 375 for 7 minutes.
Try and share. :)

For the next several days I will be posting about the World Congress of Families. This year it is being held in Sydney, Australia. Remember how we helped to raise funds for Angela to attend? She is sending daily reports of the presentations, interviews she is able to have, and more. I am excited to share with you what she is experiencing. There are so many around the world - politicians, religious leaders, community organizers, trained professionals, and others - who are dedicated to defending the family. I will try to post each day's events in order so you are not reading them backwards as you scroll down. I have broken up Angela's summaries into several posts so it isn't overwhelming to see a HUGE post. Remember, if you have any questions you would like her to ask when she gives her interviews, leave them in the comments and I will pass them along to her.
