Peanut Butter Brownie Gooey Butter Cookies

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/3 cup cocoa

1 1/4 cup sugar

1/4 tsp salt

8-oz cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup unsalted butter

1 egg

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/3 cup peanut butter

In a bowl combine the flour, cocoa, sugar, and salt. Set aside.  In an electric mixer, combine the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add the egg, vanilla and peanut butter and mix until creamy.

Add the flour mixture to the cream cheese mixture and mix until well combined. Cover and place in the refrigerator so the dough can firm up a little bit.

Preheat oven to 350 F. Remove dough from fridge and roll the chilled dough into tablespoon sized balls. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool completely. The cookies will stay soft and gooey on the inside. Yum!
