Peanut Butter Brownie Cookies

These are my husband's favorite cookies...  well one of them.  They are also the third and final installment of cookies his co-worker's snarfed this Christmas.  I have made these for multiple carry-in's at his work and they are always requested for the next event.  They are really good and really rich.  Make them small or you will be sad... and sick.
Peanut Butter Brownie Cookies

1 pkg. brownie mix
1/4 c. melted butter
4 oz. softened cream cheese
1 lg. egg
1 c. powdered sugar
1 c. peanut butter
1 container chocolate frosting

Mix together brownie mix, butter, cream cheese and egg.

Drop by scant tablespoons onto a parchment lined baking sheet.  Smooth edges, they will not smooth out as they bake.

Mix together sugar and peanut butter until smooth. Roll into small (scant teaspoon size) balls and...

press into each brownie ball.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes (more for bigger cookies, less for smaller ones).  Cool on cookie sheet.  When completely cool, spread with frosting.
