I love baked goods.  Cookies, pies, and yummy, yummy breads.  I am on the fence when it comes to cake and doughnuts–don’t judge me, it just depends on the day/flavor.


I came across this recipe LONG before Pinterest.  I found it in a magazine years ago and wrote it out on a recipe card, and that, really dates me, doesn’t it?  You can search “Peanut Butter Brownie Cookies” and all of the recipes are pretty much this exact one, so I can’t exactly say where I got it from, but trust me, this cookie is tasty AF.  How can you go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter?!?  It is a gift from the heavens.  Nomnomnomnom.



Peanut Butter Brownie Cookies

1 box packaged brownie mix

1/4 cup melted vegetable shortening

4 oz cream cheese

1 egg

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/2 cup peanut butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Beat brownie mix, melted Crisco, cream cheese, and egg in a mixer until the dough is well blended.  Roll dough into balls, about golf ball size and place on cookie sheet.  (Dough will be very sticky.)


In a small bowl, mix peanut butter and powdered sugar until well blended.  Roll into balls, about the size of a large marble and press them into brownie dough.


Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes.  Cool on rack and then eat until your heart’s content.
