[adinserter block=”1″]

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

Cream Butter and Sugars:

In a large mixing bowl, using a hand mixer, cream together the butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until well combined.

Add Egg and Vanilla:

Add in the egg, milk, and vanilla, mixing until fully incorporated.

Add Dry Ingredients:

Gradually mix in the flour mixture until fully combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. The dough will be very soft.

Chill the Dough:

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill for approximately 1 hour.

Prep for Baking:

While the dough is chilling, prepare baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats and unwrap your chocolates.

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

Shape Cookies:

Once chilled, use a medium cookie scoop (about 1.5 tablespoons) to portion out the dough.

Roll each scoop of dough into a ball, then roll it in granulated sugar. Place the cookies on the prepared baking sheets, 12 per pan.

Bake:

Bake for 6 minutes, or until just puffed. Carefully remove from the oven, press a chocolate candy into the center of each cookie, and return to the oven to finish baking for an additional 2 minutes.

Let the cookies cool on the pan before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
