Rosebud Peanut Butter Cookies

The strangest thing happened to me the other day.

I looked in my cupboard, and oh my gosh. What is this?? Uneaten chocolate? Can it be?

Oh yes, it really can. As much as I wanted to sit down on a nice (sturdy) chair and just stuff my face with this sweet goodness, I decided (since it's so close to Christmas and all) that I was going to share this chocolate with others. And what is the best way to share things? Why, in cookie form, of course!

Of course I forgot to put flour in this, or anything not resembling sugar. I think I should put a disclaimer on this post: if you do not like sugar, I advise that you look away from the ingredient list. Far, far away. But I haven't had a peanut butter cookie in so long, so I think I deserve the treat.

What you'll need:

-2 cups peanut butter
-2 eggs
-2/3 cup brown sugar
-2/3 cup confectioners sugar
-2/3 cup white sugar
+rosebud chocolates (best if you freeze them)


    1.   Preheat the oven to 350˚F
    2.   Cream together the eggs, sugars and peanut butter.
    3.   Shape the dough into 1 inch balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
    4.   Bake for 10 minutes. Remove cookies from the oven. Press the frozen rosebud chocolates onto the warm cookies, and transfer to wire racks to cool.
