NotesI love this recipe because I originated it with my husband. I wanted peanut butter cookies but with more than just peanut butter. I combined several ingredients that I and my husband liked in a cookie and came up with these. I have let people try these cookies who said they didn't like peanut butter cookies and are now hooked! They can be considered peanut butter cookies because that is the main ingredient but they are so much more. I wnated to share these cookies with everyone on Bakespace because they are a treasure to my family and if you try the recipe you will see why the are called decadent, they will ruin your diet because you can't just eat one!
