I was just getting ready to post this recpe -- found it in a newspaper a couple weeks ago and just made them this past weekend. WOW!!! The outside is a nice semi-crisp cookie -- but the center is this marvelous creamy filling that is devine!!! I know the next time I make them, I will be doubling the recipe. The only way anyone would be disappointed in these is if you don't like peanut butter or peanuts!!!

This is the best peanut butter cookie I have ever had! I doubled the recipe and I am sure glad I did. The only hard part was rolling the peanut butter and powdered sugar as it kept "melting" in my hands. Next time I would just dust my hands with a little powdered sugar before attempting to roll it. I promise if you make this cookie you will not be disappointed!

What a wonderful cookie! I can definitely see how it won the grand prize. Very different then your regular peanut butter cookie. Can't wait to make them again.
