Devil’s Food Cake Cookies with Peanut Butter Filling

These were inspired by the milk chocolate cookies with peanut butter filling that I made over the summer. I wanted to make a softer and faster version of them for Christmas Eve. So I made the cookies with devil’s food cake mix and the same peanut butter filling from the original recipe.  I used a ziploc bag to pipe the filling on quickly. Very easy dessert recipe for anyone who is a fan of chocolate and peanut butter!

Ingredients

For the cookies:

1 box devil’s food cake mix

2 eggs

1/3 cup oil

For the filling:

2 tbsp unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup peanut butter

4 tbsp confectioner’s sugar

Preheat oven to 350. Combine cake mix, oil, and eggs; stir with spoon until thoroughly moistened.  Shape dough into 1 inch balls, then gently flatten them in your palms. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.   Bake at 350 degrees for 6-7 minutes. To make the filling, beat together the butter and the peanut butter. Sift in the confectioners’ sugar; beat until fluffy. Spread the filling on the flat side of half of the cookies and sandwich with the remaining cookies.

Chocolate Cut Out Cookies

After making a LOT of sugar cookies in the past year, I’ve been wanting to try a flavor other than regular sugar and lemon.  I’ve been looking for a new flavor but a cookie that still holds up to being rolled out, cut and decorated with royal icing. I was so happy when I came across this recipe posted on Annie’s Eats.  Chocolate sugar cookies!

This makes a small batch of dough which was perfect since I made these for absolutely no reason at all. :)

Dark Chocolate Cookies

Ingredients:
¾ cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup Dutch process cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
6 tbsp. (3 oz.) unsalted butter, at room temperature
¾ cup confectioners’ sugar
1 large egg
½ tsp. vanilla extract

Directions:
In a small bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder and salt; whisk to blend and set aside.  In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the butter and sugar.  Beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes.  Blend in the egg and vanilla.  With the mixer on low speed, add the dry ingredients and mix just until incorporated and no streaks remain.  Form the dough into a disc, wrap tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, 1-2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 325˚ F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.  On a lightly floured work surface, roll the dough out to about ¼-inch thickness.  Cut out desired shapes with cookie cutters and place cut outs on the prepared baking sheet.  Bake 10-12 minutes, just until set.  Let cool on the baking sheet about 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.  Decorate as desired.
