PB BROWNIE COOKIES

1 pkg (19 1/2-oz) fudge brownie mix
1/4 cup butter, melted
4-oz (1/2 8-oz bar) cream cheese, softened
1 large egg
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup chocolate fudge frosting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

In a medium bowl beat the brownie mix, melted butter, cream cheese, and egg for 50 strokes with a wooden spoon or silicone spatula until well blended.

Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls 2-inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets to make 24 cookies.  Smooth edge of each dough mound to form a round cookie.

In a small bowl mix the powdered sugar and peanut butter with spoon until mixture forms a ball.  Using your hands, roll rounded teaspoonfuls into 24 balls.  Lightly press 1 ball into the center of each mound of cookie dough.

Bake cookies at 350 degrees for 10 to 14 minutes until the edges are set.  Cool on cookie sheets for at least half an hour.  Remove from cookie sheets and spread a thin layer of the fudge frosting over the peanut butter portion of each cookie.

Yield: 24 cookies
