Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Cookies

I don't normally take step by step photos while I'm baking, but for this cookie I made an exception. I really love these cookies and they have a nice wow-factor because most people don't know how to make them. Well, I'm going to spoil the fun for all of you. Feel free to stop reading at any point to keep from revealing the entire mystery.

 Combine 1 1/2 C flour 1/2 C cocoa powder and 1/2 tsp baking soda

 mmmm cocoa

mmmm peanut butter

 Cream 1/2 C butter, 1/2 C sugar, 1/2 C brown sugar, and 1/4 C peanut butter in your mixer stopping half way through to scrape down the sides

 Add 1 egg, 1 T milk, and 1 tsp vanilla until combined

Add as much of the flour mix as you can with the mixer (likely all of it) and stir in the rest with a wooden spoon if your mixer sounds like it might die 

 Divide the dough into two and form them into disks. Cut each disk into 4 pieces. From each of these pieces make four 1 1/4" balls and set aside

 Clean out your mixer bowl and add 3/4 C powdered sugar and 1/2 C peanut butter. Cream until thoroughly mixed and the dough holds together when pinched

 Divide the dough the same as the chocolate balls, except the balls will be 3/4 inch

 Flatten out the chocolate ball and place a peanut butter ball in the center

 Pinch the chocolate dough around the peanut butter ball making sure to cover it entirely and as evenly as possible

Fill a small bowl with 2 T granulated sugar. Place each ball on an ungreased baking sheet. Dip a glass into the sugar and lightly press down on each ball flattening them slightly. Dip in sugar again and repeat until all of the dough is flattened (to make the sugar stick to begin, touch the glass to the cookie dough and then into the sugar bowl)

Bake at 350˚ for 7-8 minutes or until the tops start to crack. Cool on the sheet for 1 minute then transfer to parchment paper to cool completely. Enjoy warm.
