From the Test Kitchen

Every week we're bringing you a selection of Add-ons—a mix of our favorite appetizers, sides, and desserts that you can add to your box and fill out your table. For these irresistibly sweet, nutty cookies, you'll use your thumb to create a well in the fresh chocolatey dough before baking, then fill each well with a crunchy peanut and honey spread after baking.

instructions
Make the dough
1 Make the dough

Remove the honey from the refrigerator. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 350°F. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of the baking powder (you will have extra). Melt the butter in a separate, large bowl in the microwave (or melt in a small pot, then transfer to a large bowl). Add the brown sugar and granulated sugar; whisk to combine. Add the egg; whisk to thoroughly combine. Add the dry ingredients. Using a spatula, gently mix until just incorporated (be careful not to overmix).

Form & bake the cookies
2 Form & bake the cookies

Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Scoop about 2 tablespoons of the dough into your hands; roll into a ball (if the dough is too sticky, wet your hands with water to prevent it from sticking), then place on the sheet pan. Repeat with the remaining dough to ensure the cookies are the same size, evenly spacing them out on the sheet pan. Using your thumb, press into the center of each ball to create a deep well. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until the dough is set and cooked through. Transfer to a cooling rack; let stand at least 5 minutes. (If the wells have risen too much during baking, using the bottom rounded side of a spoon, press into the center of the cookie to form a deep well.)

Meanwhile, finely chop the peanuts. In a bowl, combine the peanut butter spread, mascarpone, chopped peanuts, honey (kneading the packet before opening), and a pinch of salt. When cool enough to handle, evenly divide the peanut butter filling among the wells of the baked cookies. Enjoy!
