These took like your usual soft chocolate cookies, until you take a bite!
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1⁄2 peanut butter
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 1 1⁄2 cups peanut butter
- 1 1⁄2 cups powdered sugar
- Mix together flour, cocoa, & baking soda in small bowl.
- In large mixing bowl, beat butter, both sugars, & 1/2 cup peanut butter until light. Blend in vanilla, eggs, & sour cream.
- Mix dry ingredients in with wet, and set aside.
- In separate bowl, mix together powdered sugar & 1 1/2 cups peanut butter.
- Roll filling into 1-inch balls. Alternatively, you can chill filling slightly, roll into a long cylinder, and slice.
- Take small amount of dough, about twice the size of a filling ball (1 1/2 - 2 tbsp), and form a little cup. Put a filling ball inside, and pinch the dough-cup shut.

- Flatten the balls with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar.

Wonderful new twist on an old favorite of ours, & I thoroughly enjoyed making these great treats! I shared a few of them with a neighbor couple, but the majority of them were devoured right here at home by the 2 of us! Your recipe is a great keeper, & I'll be making these again & again, I just know it! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]
