Peanut Butter Filling and Reese's Pieces!

Reese's Pieces Stuffed Cookies

1 stick soft butter
1/2c. sugar
1/2c. light brown sugar
1/4c. peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 large egg
1 1/3c flour
1/2c. unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

3/4c. peanut butter (3/4 cup)
3/4c. confectioner’s sugar
1/3c. Reese’s Pieces

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Cream the butter, both sugars and peanut butter. Add the vanilla and egg, beating to combine. Blend in the dry ingredients.

To make the filling beat the peanut butter and confectioner's sugar until smooth. Fold in the Reese's Pieces. (if u prefer u can chop the pieces up. I left them whole.)

To shape the cookies, break off a large chunk of chocolate dough, make an indentation with your finger, and place a tsp. of filling inside. Push the dough up and over the ball. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.

Dip the top of each cookie into extra sugar and flatten slightly. Bake 10-15 mins depending on the size of your cookies. I made fairly large cookies and had more filling than I needed for the dough.
