PEANUT BUTTER FILLED CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES


So, I got a craving the other night for chocolate chip cookies - you know - the kind we all grew up with, Nestle TOLL HOUSE Cookies. So I made a batch. A batch of cookies all for me. I cannot eat all those cookies at once and I only like my cookies fresh baked, I'm finicky that way.  So I baked up a few and wrapped the rest of the dough up and stuck it in the fridge.

The next night I made a few more. The next night after that I had a craving for peanut butter.  (No, I'm not pregnant - I am just a slave to my food cravings, okay?) As I was grabbing the peanut butter out of the cupboard I had a little flash of inspiration....why not stuff the peanut butter IN the chocolate chip cookies?  So, I did.

PEANUT BUTTER FILLED CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

Make the traditional Nestle Toll House Cookie dough.
Chill it for an hour or so to make it less sticky to work with.
Heat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Take a 1-1/4" ball of dough and flatten it on some wax or parchment paper.
Spoon on a teaspoon or so of peanut butter (I used honey roasted, yum!)


Pick up the flattened, peanut butter filled cookie in your hand and mold the cookie dough around the peanut butter.
You don't have to close it completely up.
Put the cookie balls on a parchment lined cookie sheet and flatten them just slightly.
Bake at 375 for about 15 - 20 minutes - baking time will depend on how big your cookies are - you can see the size of mine from this:

Eat cookies.
(How much do you love me now?)

And now I'm thinking.....where did I put those mini marshmallow and the honey roasted peanuts?

And if you like peanut butter and chocolate.....wait until you see what I'm posting up this Friday!
