Brownie Chunk Peanut Butter Cookies

These were a hit at the office! This is a great recipe to use up extra brownies. I used one week-old plain chocolate brownies. The cookies are very chocolaty, and they are chewy and moist. The peanut butter flavor is not strong, so add a bit more if you like.

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup margarine
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups brownie chunks

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl and set aside. Cream together the margarine and sugars. Add in egg and vanilla, and mix well. Mix in peanut butter until the batter is smooth. Gradually mix in the dry ingredients. Stir in brownie chunks.
Drop tablespoons of dough onto the cookie sheets.
Bake for 12 minutes, until the cookies are lightly browned.
Yields 2 dozen cookies.
