A couple of weeks ago I was craving dessert. Let’s be honest, I’m pretty much always craving dessert. But, it was one of those days that I wanted to make something immediately. I also wanted to make something that my husband would eat. I gave him a few options, and he chose peanut butter cookies.

I do not love peanut butter cookies. But, I do love peanut butter with chocolate. I decided that the move was to make chocolate chip cookies stuffed with peanut butter. I wanted a thin, soft cookie, with enough peanut butter to taste, but not so much that it was overpowering. So, I flattened out the dough before baking it, and spread the peanut butter thin as well.

The first time I made these cookies, I was super happy with the taste, but they came out a little too flat. So, I made them again with a few adjustments. The second time they came out exactly as I hoped. I took them to a cookout and they were a hit with friends as well. One fun thing about these being thin is that you don’t guess they have a filling from just looking at them – the first bite is a fun little cookie surprise!
