Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Cookies


If you like peanut butter and chocolate, especially together, this is the cookie for you. This is another re-post that was posted in 2008 and again in 2010. It seems that as I keep making them, they get to be more and more or a wanted item which makes me want to update the photos and approach to this super easy recipe.
This recipe comes from my wonderful aunt Sally and I honestly don't know how she continues to cook and bake the way she does. It is like magic. She can just take something out of nothing and make it delicious. So, with this recipe which is actually called Magic Middles, I give her a big shout out to say thank you for your creation!

How many cookies do you make from one batch dough + filling? I read through the recipe three times but cannot seem to find it… Thanks!
