Peanut Butter Cookies With A Twist

It’s COOKIE MONDAY time!  A new series which I started on my YouTube Channel!  I’ve made peanut butter cookies many times, but these were my favorite because I not only put Ghirardelli Dark Sea Salt Caramel in the center, I also tried it with Cookie Butter from Trader Joes.

Have you watched the video?

The texture is chewy even after I left it sitting in open air for about two hours!  I probably could have made the cookies bite sized, but if you are having a bake sale these cookies would be perfect to sell individually.

There are so many different ways I  can make peanut butter cookies, what are some ways you have made them?

  2. How many cookies does this make?

    • Hi Emilyy,

      It depends how big you make the cookies. If you make the cookies large, 15-18. If you decided to make cookies small 30-40. Hope this helps!
