I picked this out for something different for Christmas and just got around to making it today. Great choc/PB taste, but will keep this recipe for special occasions, as it takes a little longer to form and shape the balls. I baked 10 minutes on my regular pan and 12 on my stone. I had leftover peanut butter filling, so I'll use more in the cookies next time.
