Peanut butter filled chocolate cookies

So we've had this recipe for a while and decided to make them today.
We got the recipe online (not sure where from, sorry!) and made a few tiny changes. This is it...


1.5 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1/2 cup icing sugar

1. Preheat oven to 180˚C.
2. Mix the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
3. Beat the sugar, butter and 1/4 cup of the peanut butter until light and smooth. Add the vanilla and egg. Once combined, slowly add the flour mixture. 

4. To make the filling, cream together the icing sugar and remaining 1/2 cup PB until smooth.
To assemble: 

1. Make a small ball on your hand. Place ball on a piece of plastic wrap and flatten.
2. Add a teaspoon (not too much) of the PB filling on the middle and holding the bottom of the cookie through the plastic, fold the sides inwards so that you close the cookie and it becomes a ball again. You shouldn't see any filling at this point.
3. Roll into a ball and slightly flatten.
4. Place on a baking tray and bake for about 10 minutes or until you see they start to dry out and they look crackly.
5. Transfer to wire rack to let cool completely.
