Peanut Butter Decadence

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. — Marcel Proust

I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving week! As we approach December may we all continue to feel an attitude of gratitude each day!

I am always trying to perfect my cookie recipes! I was recently looking for a bakery style peanut butter cookie recipe and found the most incredible recipe! I created this decadence cookie idea and felt it needed to start with a great recipe! I used the XL Bakery Style Peanut Butter Cookie from Crazy for Crust with a few slight adjustments. This cookie has been a huge hit! Maybe you will want to add it to your holiday baking! ENJOY!
