Ingredients

1/4
cup dry roasted peanuts, finely chopped
1/4
cup granulated sugar
1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2
cup JIF® Creamy Peanut Butter
1/2
cup powdered sugar
1
roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated peanut butter cookies, well chilled
  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. In small bowl, mix chopped peanuts, granulated sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
  • 2 In another small bowl, stir peanut butter and powdered sugar until completely blended. Shape mixture into 24 (1-inch) balls.
  • 3 Cut roll of cookie dough into 12 slices. Cut each slice in half crosswise to make 24 pieces; flatten slightly. Shape 1 cookie dough piece around 1 peanut butter ball, covering completely. Repeat with remaining dough and balls.
