Peanut Butter Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn't love the Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip cookie? The only way I can think to make it better is to add peanut butter to it. So tonight that is exactly what I did.

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 cup chopped nuts(optional)

1 c. peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
1 c. powdered sugar

Mix together in a small bowl until well blended.

For cookie:
Preheat oven to 375° F.

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

Make indention in center of dough and place a small ball of peanut butter mixture in center. Top with another rounded teaspoon of cookie dough and seal edges by pressing together to cover peanut butter filling.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
