Peanut butter brownie cookies recipe | DIY Food

I always say it, and probably always will- there is no better way to warm up a home on a cold winter day, then baking in the oven!   I’m not sure if it’s really the warmth from the oven, or simply just the joyful smell and happy atmosphere, but either way- it warms me up!

I have been baking peanut butter brownie cookies for years and change the recipe as I go along and learn what works best for me.  Below is my latest version.

Peanut Butter Brownie Cookies

Ingredients

* 1 (19.5 oz.) package Traditional Fudge Brownie Mix

*  1 large egg

* 1 cup powdered sugar
* 1 cup creamy peanut butter

* Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto a non greased cookie sheet to make 24 cookies;  push center of cookie down a LITTLE with thumb to create a little ‘bowl’ for the peanut butter ball to sit in.  (do not go all the way through cookie or your peanut butter will fall through once cooked).
