Apologies for my 2 week absence! I’ve been busy moving from Illinois to Virginia, where I am now a permanent resident! Oh yes, and there was this little detour to New York City where I got to complete a decade-long wish to eat breakfast at Tiffany’s (bagel and lox cream cheese from Ess-A-Bagel…yummm).
I also highly recommend the frozen treats from Serendipity 3 like this white hot chocolate!
Anyway, I’m back and I have my own treat for you! Peanut Butter Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies. They are similar to the cookies with a Hershey’s Kiss in the middle only they’re better because they always stay soft, even upon cooling, since they’re filled with chocolate ganache. The cookie base is amazing as well. I like to call these cookies “peanut butter truffles” since they’re soft and rich and melt in your mouth. I’m addicted to Sally’s cookies! And I especially love cookies when they have fillings like my Grandma’s Butterhorn Cookies or cream cheese frosting sandwiched between Red Velvet Cookies.
You can use any chocolate you prefer for the ganache–milk chocolate, dark chocolate, a high quality block of chocolate or even chocolate chips. You can’t go wrong with the peanut butter/chocolate combo!
