Yummy, mini chocolate pie cookies. Dare I say more? I did not include the 1 hours dough chilling time.
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
- 2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- Pastry Shells:.
- In a mixing bowl, cream butter, peanut butter and sugars.
- Add eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
- Stir together the flour, baking soda and salt, adding this to the creamed mixture.
- Mix well.
- Chill for 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 325°F.
- Lightly grease mini-muffin pans.
- Shape batter into 1-inch balls and place balls in lightly greased mini-muffin tins.
- Bake for 14 to 16 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Remove from oven and immediately make "wells" in the center of each by lightly pressing with a small teaspoon.
- Cool in pans for 5 minutes, then carefully remove to wire racks.
- Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler over simmering water. Stir in condensed milk and remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla; mix well.
- Using a small pitcher or pastry bag, fill each shell with filling.
- Store in an airtight container in a cool place. Makes 8 dozen cookies.
I love these. To fill the center faster without the fudge setting up, put the fudge in a icing bag to fill the holes :)
This recipe made ALOT of cookies which was great, and everyone liked them...I am giving a 4 due to the fact that the fudge filling was hard to get in all of the cookies before it started to set up. The taste was good, and if you are much more quick than I am this would be an excellent cookie.
These little gems are so easy to make and they look so fancy! The peanut butter in the cookie shell really comes through, making it taste almost like a cookie version of a peanut butter cup. The middles fall a bit as they cook so I didn't need to press much to make the "wells", but I used the rounded end of a small pestle which worked great. I only had time to make ONE batch of cookies this holiday season and I'm so glad I chose this one! Thanks for an awesome cookie! :)
