Double-Delight Peanut Butter Cookies

Double-Delight-Peanut-Butter-Cookies-1

Double-Delight Peanut Butter Cookies won the 43nd Pillsbury Bake-Off in 2008. Recipe on Pillsbury.com by Carolyn Gurtz of Gaithersburg, Maryland. A peanut butter cookie with a creamy peanut butter filling puts the double in these delightful cookies. Chopped peanuts and cinnamon sugar give them an extra crunch and added flavor.

Then divide it into 24 (1-inch) balls.

Cut the peanut butter cookie dough into 12 pieces, then cut each piece in half. Flatten each piece and wrap it around peanut butter/sugar ball.

Dip cookies in a mixture of peanuts, cinnamon and sugar.

Place on cookie sheet and gently press down. Recipe calls for using the bottom of a glass (sprayed with cooking spray and dipped in nut mixture) to press the cookies down, but I just used my fingers. I sprinkled more of the nut mixture and pressed gently. (Note: the cookie sheet in this photo belonged to my great grandmother. We called her Dama because that’s what my dad said when he was trying to pronounce Grandma as a young child. The cookie sheet is fairly small – 8.75″ X 12.75″ – and I’ve never seen another one like it.)

Bake the cookies at 375°F. for about 10 minutes.

My kids loved them. They are creamy in the middle with a soft crunch on the outside. Sure to please if you’re a peanut butter lover!

    Eu unul realizez ca nici o companie nu face un abonament &#l;l02specia82y tailored” decat daca le dai minim 200 de euro pe luna. Si daca daca reusesti sa folosesti cartela mai ieftin decat abonamentul, atunci foloseste-o! Dar nu pune compania sa iti faca abonament ca tu sa nu mai trebuiasca sa reincarci ci doar sa astepti factura; ai deja un avantaj.
