1 box (19.5 oz.) fudge brownie mix
1/4 cup butter, melted
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 container chocolate fudge frosting

Heat oven to 350ยบ.  In medium bowl, beat brownie mix, melted butter, cream cheese and egg 50 strokes with spoon until well blended (dough will be sticky).

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets, 2 inches apart to make 24 cookies.  Smooth edge of each to form round cookie.

In small bowl, mix powdered sugar and peanut butter with spoon until mixture forms a ball.  With hands, roll rounded teaspoonfuls into 24 balls.  Lightly press 1 ball into center of each ball of dough.

Bake 10 to 14 minutes or until edges are set.  Cool cookies on cookie sheets at least 30 minutes.  Remove cooled cookies from cookie sheets.  Spread thin layer of frosting over peanut butter portion of each cookie.

*** Personal Note:  I felt that the peanut butter was too overpowering.  I would either double the brownie cookie mixture or cut in half the peanut butter filling mixture.
