Ingredients

  • Basic Chocolate Cookie Dough
  • 3 semisweet chocolate melted
  • 12 salted roasted peanuts halved
Filling:
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

Method

Filling: Stir peanut butter with brown sugar until smooth. For each cookie, roll 1 tbsp dough into ball; in palm of hand, press to flatten into about 1/3-inch (3 mm) thick disc. Repeat to form second disc.

Curve hand to form well in centre of 1 of the discs; fill with 1 tsp of the filling. Top with second disc; press dough around filling to cover. Press to flatten slightly; pinch edge to seal and form about 2-inch (5 cm) diameter disc. Place cookies, about 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheets.

Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in 350 F (180 C) oven until no longer shiny, about 18 minutes. Let cool on pans on racks for 5 minutes. Transfer to racks; let cool completely. Drizzle chocolate over cookies; top each with 1 peanut half. Cover loosely and refrigerate until chocolate is firm, about 30 minutes.

Make-ahead
: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container and store for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 2 weeks.?
