Random Million Dollar Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe!

Hey there! I don't know why I'm posting this video. Maybe it has to do with being on a diet (trying to get the beach body ready for summer). But it's also some nice & happy news. Mrs. Gurtz is the winner of the Pillsbury Baking contest. I thought the idea was simple (I can even do it) and it's just a simple twist on a regular old peanut butter cookie: it has a peanut butter center! BTW she won a cool million dollars for it!

I'm no cook, so maybe this isn't so new to you all, but, either I'm way too hungry at the moment or it really is a nice take on the pb cookie!

Here is the video below and below that is the recipe!



Recipe:

24 cookies

INGREDIENTS

1/4 cup Fisher® Dry Roasted Peanuts, finely chopped
1/4 cup Domino® or C&H® Granulated Sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup JIF® Creamy Peanut Butter
1/2 cup Domino® or C&H® Confectioners Powdered Sugar
1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® Create ‘n Bake® refrigerated peanut butter cookies, well chilled

DIRECTIONS

Heat oven to 375° F.

In small bowl, mix chopped peanuts, granulated sugar and cinnamon; set aside. In another small bowl, stir peanut butter and powdered sugar until completely blended. Shape mixture into 24 (1-inch) balls.

Cut roll of cookie dough into 12 slices. Cut each slice in half crosswise to make 24 pieces; flatten slightly. Shape 1 cookie dough piece around 1 peanut butter ball, covering completely. Repeat with remaining dough and balls. Roll each covered ball in peanut mixture; gently pat mixture completely onto balls.

On ungreased large cookie sheets, place balls 2 inches apart. Spray bottom of drinking glass with CRISCO® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray; press into remaining peanut mixture.

Flatten each ball to 1/4-inch thickness with bottom of glass. Sprinkle any remaining peanut mixture evenly on tops of cookies; gently press into dough.

Bake 7 to 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Store tightly covered.
