  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 cups powdered sugar sifted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions 

  • Sift the cocoa, flour and salt into a bowl and stir.
  • In the bowl of your electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until creamy and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time and beat until combined. Beat in the vanilla extract. Slowly add the cocoa mixture and beat until just combined.
  • Bring the dough together and separate it into two pieces. Roll each piece out (you can stick it between two sheets of parchment so it doesn’t stick) into ¼ inch thickness and place it on a baking sheet. Freeze for 1 hour.
  • After 1 hour, preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Use a biscuit cutter or 2-inch round cutter, cut out rounds and place them on a baking sheet about 2 inches part. Chill in the fridge or freezer for 30 more minutes.
  • Bake the cookies for 20 minutes, or until a bit darker on the outside edges. Let cool completely before filling with the peanut butter cream and sandwiching the cookies together.
