RECIPE BACKSTORY
I went up north during Christmas for a rest. After working so many months for either 6 and 7 days a week. Rest was what I needed. The weather was not to bad except for the high winds for those couple days. The one day was really quite bad, one of the trees fell on the hydro wire, luckily it fell on another smaller tree and did not bring down the wire. The cottage I rented was the A frame and the upstairs was only part of the area, so when the wind was blowing the floor never stopped moving. It was a bit unnerving. Finally I went downstairs and decided to bake cookies. Looking to see what supplies were in the cottage it looked like Peanut Butter Cookies it was. Since we had the internet I used my recipe. When I finished preparing the dough I decided to add about 6 Ferrero Roches to the batter. I chopped them up coarsely mixed them and dropped them onto the cookie sheet and baked them. It is a really nice combination. When I got home I made them again.
