      WOW!! These cookies are great! I baked a batch while I was waiting for supper to be ready to put on and filled them after we ate. Just so fast and so tasty. Another Mirjam Dorn 5-Star winner! Thanks so much for sharing. Laudee C.

      very good and fun to make. my brother said that these were way better than regular nutter butters. the only change i had was that i had to add a little milk to the filling to help the powdered sugar and p.b. incorporate. i'm going to make them again this weekend for my other brother's birthday. thanks.

      Really tasty cookie. I also had to add milk to the filling in order to make a frosting-type consistency. I found the quickest way to flatten the cookies was to just put all of the rolled balls on the sheet and then use 2 fingers to flatten them. A very 5-star deserving cookie.
