Peanut Butter Cookie Surprise Brownies
For the Peanut Butter Surprise:
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
For the Brownies:
¾ cup butter, melted
1 ½ cups sugar
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
¾ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup cocoa powder
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
Heat oven to 350°. Line a 9x9 inch square pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine peanut butter, egg, and 1 cup sugar. Mix until combined. Drop by spoonfuls in evenly spaced rows in your pan. You will have leftover dough. (Drop the rest by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet, press with a fork to flatten, and bake for about 8-10 minutes.)
In a large bowl, combine butter, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, beat well with spoon. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt, gradually add to egg mixture, beating until well blended. Pour over cookie dough drops in the pan and spread to the edges. (The cookie dough should not show).
Bake 40-45 minutes or until the brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely before cutting into bars. Makes about 16 brownies.
