Peanut Butter-Filled Chocolate Cookies

Total Time

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.

These are actually so good! The dough seems a bit crumbly at first but melds together fine! Made 2 batches in 2 days, drizzled white chocolate over the second batch. :) definitely recommend!

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
