My Chocolate Chip Gooey Peanut Butter Cookie Mash Up

Ok, so after posting a picture of my fair winning cookies on my Facebook mobile uploads a few people said they wanted my recipe. Just so you know this recipe is rather time consuming, but oh so delicious! These are cookies your grandma would be proud of :)

So First the recipe for the initial cookie:

1 1/4 C. Flour

3/4 tsp. Baking Soda

1/4 tsp. Salt

1/2 C. Butter

1/2 C. Peanut Butter

1 C. Chocolate Chips

1/2 C. Sugar

1/2 C. Packed Brown Sugar

1 Egg

1/2 tsp. Vanilla

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees
  2. Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a mixing bowl beat butter, peanut butter and sugars until fluffy.
  4. Add egg and vanilla, beat well.
  5. Add dry ingredients and beat until well combined.
  6. Add chocolate chips

Set to the side!

Now your going to make your filling and topping!

1/4 C. Dry Roasted Peanuts, finely chopped

1/4 C. Granulated Sugar

1/2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon

1/2 C. Creamy Peanut Butter

1/2 C. Powdered Sugar

  1. In a small bowl mix the peanuts, granulated sugar, and cinnamon, set to the side.
  2. In another bowl mix together peanut butter and powdered sugar until completely blended. Shape into about 1/2in. balls.
  3. Take your cookie dough and roll it into about 1in. balls than flatted then with your hand, take the peanut butter/powdered sugar balls and flatten with your hand.
  4. Place the peanut butter/powdered sugar flattened ball on top of the cookie dough.
  5. Fold the sides of the cookie dough over the peanut butter/powdered sugar center.
  6. After you fold the edges and completely cover the center filling, roll the dough back into a nice ball careful not to let the center show.
  7. Then take the ball and roll it in the peanuts, granulated sugar, cinnamon mixture.
  8. Repeat, repeat!
  9. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet. Flatten the cookies with a fork, but not as intensely as you normally would a peanut butter cookie, you DONT want the fork marks to show.
  10. Bake for about 8 minuets, if the cookies are a little soft and gooey upon coming out of the oven just let this sit for a few minuets. I used parchment paper so I could just lift the cookies off the sheet to cool and replaced it with another sheet of parchment paper to bake more.
  11. After the cookies are completely cool drizzle with melted baking chocolate! This makes them look wonderful, as well as taste even better!


So there’s my fair winning cookie recipe! I currently have these cookies at state fair and I should see how they did here real soon!

Let me know if you tried my recipe and what you thought!
