C is for cookie

Some of you really seemed to like the picture of the chocolate cookies I made last night. So in your honor, here is the recipe. This is an adaptation of a recipe by the ever inspiring Isa Chandra from her cookie book. These took maybe 20 minutes (including bake time) and not only are they delicious, but they look pretty when you cut them in half.

In one bowl, mix 1 1/2 cups of flour with 1/2 tsp. of baking soda and 1/3 cup of baking cocoa. In a separate bowl, mix 1/2 cup butter with 1/2 brown sugar, 1/2 sugar and 1 tsp. of vanilla. After that is mixed together, add 1/2 cup of almond milk. Mix until incorporated, then slowly mix in the dry ingredients until you have a lovely chocolate dough. Now, grab a bowl and mix 1/2 cup of peanut butter and 1/2 cup of powdered sugar. Lightly grease a cookie pan and spoon the chocolate dough onto the pan, flattening the dough out. Place a small ball of the peanut butter on top of the chocolate dough and fold the chocolate dough over the peanut butter. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes and 350 degrees and you have delicious, fancy looking cookies! Warning: if you are dieting, stay as far away from these as possible, they are too delicious to just have one!
