So Peanut Buttery Cookies

I think I have previously told you about my friend Niall.  Niall loves peanut butter.  When I was at university and everyone was mocking American candy, Niall would defend Reeses and their brilliant combination of peanut butter and chocolate – one thing Americans do well is peanut butter!

I love to bake for my friends on Valentine’s Day and so, for Niall, this had to be the most peanut buttery cookie ever.  I went to the grocery store and pretty much hunted down anything with peanut butter which could be thrown into a cookie – I think maybe this is peanut butter enough for Niall?  But I’ll let you know what he thinks!
