I've been playing around with the peanut butter cookie from my last post, but this time I used a homemade dough--which, to me, is much tastier than the store bought one--much more peanut-buttery.  And as you can see from the picture, I've also been having fun trying different things inside.   In the ones on the left with the light colored middle, I used Peanut Butter & Co. White Chocolate Wonderful Peanut Butter (with the powdered sugar added in), the ones on the right with the thick chocolate middle I used Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter (with added powdered sugar, like the recipes indicates), for the thick center, I froze the ball before putting it in the middle of the cookie dough and baking it.  (Did these mostly for my son, Scott, who really liked them that way.  The chocolate one on the left I did the same chocolate center, but only chilled the balls in the refrigerator for a while.  You can also see I did some plain (bottom right) criss cross peanut butter with just the cookie dough.  ALL of these are SO yummy.  I am surprised, but these seem to be more of a temptation to me than the chocolate chip cookies.  So, I will conclude that the lady who just won a million dollars from the Pillsbury Bake Off knew she had something here--and so did the judges, and that's what counts.

Do not delay, especially if you love a peanut butter cookie, and grab yourself a tall, icy glass of milk (or maybe even a gallon) and bake ya up some of these and enjoy.  Be careful, I only ate about a total of one cookie (breaking off some of each kind and tasting them) and I'm very satisfied--maybe even full.  It was the milk, yeah, yeah, that's it!  ;)

Treeni your cookies look amazing. I so want to make them, but I am afraid I will eat them all! And it is crunch time with summer around the corner. The last batch of cookies I made was last week--I did Radical Rob's recipe but put in white choc. chips and macadamia nuts (Glenn's fav). They were so yummy...I had to have Glenn put them up on top of the fridge so they'd be our of reach! I know he'd love those pb surprises though, so I may try them this week if my willpower is up!
