Ingredients

For the filling

1 cup / 230 g creamy peanut butter
1 cup / 120 g confectioner's sugar

For the cookie

1-¾ cups / 220 g all purpose flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
¾ teaspoon salt
¾ cup 175 g creamy peanut butter
½ cup /110 g vegetable shortening
1-¼ cups / 250 g firmly packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 large egg + 1 large egg yolk

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 375F / 190 C / Gas 5.

For the filling

Mix together peanut butter and confectioner's sugar until a stiff dough forms.

Divide into 48 equal pieces and roll each into a ball.

Set aside on a sheet of wax or parchment paper.

For the cookie

In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, combine peanut butter, shortening, brown sugar, milk and vanilla.

Mix well on medium speed until well blended, scraping bowl twice.

Add whole egg and yolk, one at a time, mixing well between additions.

On low speed, slowly add flour mixture, beating just until blended.

Put them together

With a 1-tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop a portion of the dough into your palm and roll into a ball.

Gently flatten the ball with your fingers and place a filling ball into the center.

Gently mold the dough around the filling and roll it into a ball.

Place on an ungreased baking sheet, 2" apart.

With a fork, gently flatten the ball in a criss-cross pattern. *DO NOT SMASH!
