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
1/2 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.
