Magic in the Middles
The King Arthur Flour blog is a relatively recent find for me, but boy, is it dangerous! In the past week or so since I've found it, I've made two of their cookie recipes! If I keep this up I'm either going to gain back the 34 lbs. I've lost, or I'm going to have to start giving a lot of cookies to neighbors and friends. This past week they featured a cookie called Magic in the Middle. These were amazing cookies, crispy chocolate cookie on the outside, soft peanut butter inside. The perfect combination in my opinion. I'll just link to their recipe as I changed very little and commented on and reviewed the recipe on their site. The only change I made was to add an extra egg yolk (as they recommended to keep the dough pliable). My dough still cracked a little showing the peanut butter inside. The result was merely aesthetic, but I suppose the magic is gone if you can see there is peanut butter inside. Also, they recommend dividing the peanut butter filling into 26 balls, but I would say 32 balls would have been better as I still had enough chocolate dough left at the end to fill them. There was a lot of hands on time with this recipe but the cookie is so good that the time was well spent.
