I had a package of cookie dough in the fridge that was begging to be used. I did end up filling them with chocolate frosting instead of the fudge type filling but I think the method was great. I used a whole roll of dough that made 48 little cups. I think you could go crazy with different types of fillings. Yum.

Annacia - wow these are simple cookies to prepare but with HUGE taste! I could not believe how yummy they tasted. I did not top with chopped nuts (family preference) but the fudgy centers are enough! I the centers set up like a little piece of fudge warpped in peanut butter cookie. YUMMY to the max. These are going on my Christmas cookie tray this year! Thanks for sharing. Tagged in Photo Tag.
