¼ c. dry roasted peanuts, finely chopped
¼ c. sugar
½ tsp. cinnamon
½ c. creamy peanut butter
½ c. powdered sugar
1 (16.5 oz.) package Pillsbury Create n Bake refrigerated peanut butter cookies, well chilled (I can never find Pillsbury, but use Meijer brand).
Preheat oven to 375.
In a small bowl, mix chopped peanuts, sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
In another small bowl, stir peanut butter and powered sugar until completely blended. Shape mixture into little balls.
Cut roll of cookie dough into 12 slices. Cut each slice in half crosswise. Flatten slightly. Shape 1 cookie dough piece around 1 peanut butter ball, covering completely.
Repeat w/remaining dough and balls.
Roll each covered ball in peanut mixture. Gently pat mixture completely onto balls. On ungreased cookie sheet, place balls. Spray bottom of drinking glass with nonstick cooking spray; press into remaining peanut mixture. Flatten each ball to ¼” thickness with bottom of glass. Sprinkle any remaining peanut mixture evenly on tops of cookies. Gently press into dough.
