1/2 Photos of Peanut Butter-Filled Chocolate Cookies
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.
