Question Can I save this batch of cookie dough?

Hi all, new here and fairly new to baking in general. I made a batch of cookie dough to bake up for a friend, but thought I'd better bake a few before the whole batch to make sure everything turned out ok. Well, the taste is fine but I think I may have mismeasured the flour as the cookies are just a bit too crumbly and dry. Is there anything I can add to make the cookies a bit more moist? Or is it too late to salvage them? I've posted the recipe below in case it helps.

1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter chips

Hmmm...can you soften more butter or peanut butter perhaps and try to blend it in? I'd try working it with my hands if I were you. Thats my only brilliant suggestion, sorry!
