  3. These look insanely good! As an American living in the UK I’m always drawn to things with peanut butter in them. When first I moved here, peanut butter, and even chocolate chip cookies and pretzels, weren’t common foods. Happily I’m no longer the weirdo liking these things and importing the good stuff in my luggage!. And all in a cookie. Mmm!

  4. Wow, everything you want in a cookie! I’m such a fan of anything salty/sweet, I could get into real trouble with these cookies Deb. Save the box of chocolates for someone else. Give me these cookies and you will be my Valentine forever.
