    I know this is an old post, but I have been searching for a cookie to make for my boss who doesn’t like chocolate (I know!) for Christmas. She loves PB cups so (minus the drizzle) this is the perfect cookie for her! Thank you, thank you!

    I made these today and they are wonderful! I had to bake them about 10 minutes longer, though, to get the middle done so the sugar cookie dough wasn’t still raw. Definitely will make these again!
