Frosted Peanut Butter Cookies

It's a yummy cookie with peanut butter chips. Peanut butter frosting and chocolate frosting layer to make this one amazing cookie! It takes a pound of butter and most of your afternoon but when you are done you have 48 delicious cookies that are meant for sharing. I would share them quickly or you just might eat more than you want! I found them on Jenn's Blog, Eat Cake For Dinner.

Frosted Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, 7 ounces
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
3 1/2 cups cake flour (yes, cake flour, keep a small bag in your pantry for such occasions)
1 (12 ounce) bag Reese's Peanut Butter Chips
Cream butter, sugars, salt, baking powder, baking soda and vanilla. Add eggs and mix well. Add flour and chips, stir gently.
Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough on parchment lined sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 13-14 minutes or until set.
Cool completely and frost with peanut butter frosting. Then frost with chocolate frosting, being careful to leave a small space between the edge of the two frosting layers. Makes 48 delicious cookies.

Peanut Butter Frosting
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter frosting
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups powdered sugar
milk or cream to reached spreading consistency
Cream together  butter, peanut butter and vanilla until light and fluffy. Gradually add powdered sugar. Add enough milk or cream to reach a spreading consistency.

Chocolate Frosting
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups powdered sugar
milk or cream
Beat butter, cocoa and vanilla until combined. Gradually add powdered sugar. Add milk/cream until spreading consistency. I tasted the frosting and thought it needed more chocolate flavor. I had 3/4 cup chocolate ganache in the fridge. I warmed it and mixed it in. I declared it delicious!

Those look delicious! Love the cake flour. My favorite chocolate chip cookies are a combination of cake flour and bread flour--I always have a storage of it.
Love these!
