Gooey chocolate chip cookies filled with peanut butter

Difficulty 1/5

I love chocolate chip cookies, but oooonly those that are soft and gooey, not the ones you have to bite and sounds CRACK. I like to bend them and take a piece and have it melt in my mouth… YUM! I want more, is there any left? And these I filled with a thin layer of peanut butter. The idea is not to have a predominant peanut butter taste but to have that nice salty touch in the middle. Also, this dough works perfectly without the filling, so the peanut butter is optional… but recommended!

Portions: 8 large cookies

Ingredients:
– 125g unsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
– 200g brown sugar
– 2 tbsp honey
– 1 egg
– 245g all purpose flour
– 1 tsp salt
– 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
– 100g  milk chocolate chips + more to put on top
– 100g  unsweetened peanut butter + 25g sugar

Procedure:
1. Mix the peanut butter with the sugar

2. Mix with a whisk the butter, sugar, honey and egg until you have a nice mix.
