Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Center

Contributed By: Kay Davis


2 sprays cooking spray
1 cup sugar, granulated
1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup whole-grain wheat flour
1 oz Nestle Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunks, or other brand (about 40 pieces)


Preheat oven to 375�F. Coat 2 cookie sheets with cooking spray or cover with parchment paper.

Place sugar, butter and peanut butter in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; blend well with mixer.
Add salt, baking soda and flour to sugar mixture; beat until completely incorporated.
Drop batter by heaping teaspoons onto prepared cookie sheets and flatten with the back of a wooden spoon. Make sure to leave about 2 inches between each
cookie. (Bake in several batches to prevent over-crowding if necessary.) Place a chocolate chunk in center of each cookie.

Bake cookies until edges brown, about 10 to 11 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheet for 1 or 2 minutes; remove cookies to a wire rack
and cool completely. Yields 1 cookie per serving. Points: 2 / cookie
Serving: 1 cookie
