I can’t decide. I will either never make these cookies again, or I will make these cookies every single week! They are so tasty, so easy, and so bad for my waistline! Evil to have in the house, but a sin to never make them again! Thanks for a great recipe.

Great easy to make cookies! They were a big hit with my family.

Like others, I did have some PB filling left over when doubling this recipe.

These were sooo good!! I really noticed a difference (not a good one) when I used a cheaper cake mix. I’ll stick with Duncan Hines or Betty Crocker for sure. Definitely a keeper!

Absolutely delicious. I made them for a friend who loves peanut butter, and these were a huge hit. Once assembled, the cookies are huge, so one is plenty for a serving. Definitely make sure you don’t overbake, as having the cookie chewy is key with the filling.

Oh. Wow. These are so yummy and rich. I can’t have more than 1.5 in a single sitting and even then they need milk! I would also say there is more than enough filling with this recipe, so try halving the amounts. They remind me a bit of a “whoopie pie” a friend brought to school once. So good and deceptively easy!
