  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and set aside.
  • In a large bowl or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter, peanut butter, light brown sugar, and ½ cup of granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl and beat in the egg and vanilla until well combined.
  • Add in the dry ingredients and mix just until incorporated.
  • Use a medium cookie scoop to portion out the dough and roll into balls. Roll the dough in the remaining ½ cup of granulated sugar and place the balls on the prepared baking sheet about 2-inches apart and bake for 8 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and press the candy into the center of the cookie and bake for an additional 2 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the pan for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • Use chocolate stars, chocolate kisses, peanut butter cups, chocolate truffles, and more and candy options.
  • If you want even puffier cookies, chill the dough balls for 30 minutes before rolling in sugar and baking. 
  • These cookies are best within 4 days and stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
  • Cookie dough balls can be prepared up to 1 day in advance. 
  • Cookies may be frozen in a freezer bag for up to 3 months.
