Peanut Butter Brownie Cookies

It doesn't get any better than this.

Peanut Butter Brownie Cookies
1 box traditional fudge brownie mix
1/4 cup butter flavored Crisco
(you could probably get away with regular Crisco if that's all you have)
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350°. Beat brownie mix, Crisco, cream cheese and egg until well blended. The dough will be sticky. Drop 2 dozen rounded spoonfuls of dough onto ungreased cookie sheets. In a small bowl, mix powdered sugar and peanut butter until it forms a ball. With your hands, roll out 24 peanut butter balls. Lightly press a ball into the center of each cookie dough. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until edges are set. Cool and then top with this topping:

8 oz tub Cool Whip
6 squares of semi-sweet baking chocolate

Melt both ingredients in microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and melt for additional 30 seconds or until smooth and shiny.
(You can use this topping for lots of things, including ice cream!)
