2 cups flour

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

9 Tablespoons butter, softened

2 Tablespoons sour cream

1 large egg

1 large egg yolk

1/2 Tablespoon vanilla

Peanut butter frosting:

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

3 Tablespoons butter, softened

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 & 1/2 cups powdered sugar

3 – 4 Tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 350º.  In a mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients.  In the bowl of an electric mixer, whip together sugars, butter, and sour cream until light and fluffy.  Stir in egg, egg yolk, and vanilla.  Slowly add in dry ingredients and mix until incorporated (dough will be thick).  Scoop dough out 2 tablespoons at a time and roll into a ball.  Place on lightly greased cookie sheet and evenly flatten to about 1/2 inch thick.  Bake for 9 – 10 minutes.  Allow to cool and then frost with peanut butter frosting.  Sprinkle with chocolate sprinkle if desired.
