This recipe is dedicated to our new daughter-in-law Malki, who’s a real peanut butter fan. With peanut butter starring in every component of this cookie, it’s bursting with creamy goodness in every bite. Go ahead and indulge! But be aware — they’re addictive!
Peanut Butter Pockets
- Cooking and Prep: 3 h 20 m
- Serves: 12
For the Cookies
Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in the bowl of a mixer. Add margarine, cut into cubes, and peanut butter, and mix until it forms crumbs. Stir in corn syrup and soy milk. Mix well.
Form into a round log. Wrap in Gefen Easy Baking Parchment Paper and refrigerate for a few hours, or even overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius). Unwrap dough and cut into thin slices, using a straight, sharp knife.
Arrange half the slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Top each slice with a drop of chunky peanut butter and sprinkle with a few mini chocolate chips. Close with a second cookie slice, and press the edges together with your fingers to seal.
Bake for 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly before glazing.
For the Glaze
Combine confectioners’ sugar, peanut butter, and dissolved coffee in a small bowl until smooth. Place in a ziplock bag and make a tiny hole in the corner with a toothpick. Drizzle all over cookies.
Melt a small amount of chocolate in a ziplock bag in the microwave. Make a hole in the corner as above and drizzle lightly over peanut butter glaze.
These cookies freeze well and taste even better frozen.
