Double Peanut Butter Cookies


Peanut butter cookies are one of my favourites, so when my mother in law told me she had a recipe for them with a peanut butter centre; I asked if I could have it. She shared her recipe with me along with a sample of these double, delicious cookies. They are not only pretty to look at; they are as tasty as they sound. I can attest to this. I ate 3 before they made it home.

Place half the cookies on ungreased cookie sheets. Drop ½ tsp of peanut butter onto the centre of each cookie. Cover each cookie with remaining cookie slices; seal edges with a fork.
