    Deantini's Note:

    Seriously - if you love peanut butter and chocolate these cookes are a MUST try. Imagine a wonderful chewy chocolate cookie with a creamy peanut butter filling - it is as good as it sounds. The recipe is from Toronto Star. We made them today and they will be on our cookie tray for years to come - for sure! The recipe mentions that the cookie does well with a 15 second reheat in the microwave on day 3. I don't think we will get to try that in this household.

      I wholeheartedly agree with HokiesLady...these are seriously good cookies. The kids are going nuts for them, and me and DH are doing a good job at making them disappear rapidly too!
      Made and reviewed as a THANK YOU for tagging in PRMR during the recent TIC-TAC-TOE event.

      impressive though I had to concentrate to figure the instructions out - just me maybe - just roll a small ball of filling up in a flattened ball of chocolate, then flatten

      I made these the last two years and they have been a overwhelming success each time! It is now a tradition of ours to make these at Christmastime to put in the goodie bags we make for our friends and family. Yummy!!!
