Cookie Monday

Remember Sugar Sisters bakery in Kansas?
Well that morning, Megan, Sarah, Julie, and I- over cupcakes and coffee... at 10am- discussed methods of concocting a replica of their
scrumptious peanut butter frosting.
So here's my version in cookie form, inspired by the Chocolate Peanut Butter cupcake, itself. And more importantly, named after the well-endowed (and clearly proud of it) Sugar Sister, herself.
Not just Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter, but...

Triple{D} Chocolate
Peanut Butter Cookies


You'll need:
1 cup a.p. flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 stick unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
*
1/2 stick butter, room temperature
1 cup natural peanut butter (so it's not overly sweet)
1/4 pound powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 TBSP milk

And then you:
1.
Preheat oven to 325. Sift together first four ingredients, and set aside.
2. Melt half the chocolate chips with the butter over a double boiler, and cool slightly.
3. Mix melted chocolate, sugar, eggs, and vanilla in an electric mixer until well-combined. Gradually add flour mixture. Add remaining chocolate chips.
4. Scoop walnut-sized balls onto lined baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake 14-15 minutes, and cool on wire racks.
5. Meanwhile, make the frosting: beat remaining ingredients until well combined.
6. Pipe, scoop, or spread the frosting onto cooled cookies.
7. Lick the frosting bowl.

{makes about 2 1/2 dozen}
