  1. I think a bit of my favorite jelly in the middle of each delicious morsel would be an extra special touch…. JUST SAYING!

  2. Even yummier, try adding a bit of your favorite preserves for a special touch!

  3. These were absolutely delicious!!! They didnt last but a day at my house.

  4. Absolutely fabulous! I will share this recipe with everyone in my family and friends. 

  5. The best tasting peanut butter cookie recipe I’ve had in a long time. Filling was easy and delicious too. Hope nobody asks what’s in the icingYum

  6. I really like this recipe, can’t eat the store bought any longer because of diabetes. What’s the changes I’d need to make these sugar free. 

    • Use Swerve sweetener. They make powdered and brown sugar. Use natural peanut butter or grind your own peanut butter. They have a peanut butter station at Winco where you can make your own peanut butter.

  7. Veganized these with flax egg, homemade almond milk and vegan butter…
    And made them gluten free by subbing almond flour and coconut flour!!
    Absolutely decadent!!
    I will be making them for gift boxes next week!

  8. So good!! Question, should I refrigerate these? Wasnt sure since there’s a little milk in the filling. My husband is taking them to work tomorrow. Thanks!

  9. No tweaking of recipe needed, these are absolutely perfect. Easy and delicious. Great recipe!
