    I was really in the mood to make peanut butter cookies. Even though I didnt have any Goober candies, these cookies were a hit with my two boys. I put a few choc chips in the middle instead and they loved them! I really liked making these, the cookie itself without the peanutbutter gives you lots of ideas to work with. Nuts or mint choc candy. I cant wait to make more!

    I tried this and put them in mini-muffin cups like someone else did. I didn't have any goobers so I used candy coated chocolate peanuts! Very festive with the red and green. I had to bake a little longer. I think they will get a good review at the cookie exchange!
