Reese's Double Peanut Butter Cookies
Why I Love This Recipe
My fiance says these are the best peanut butter cookies he's ever had, and he is a peanut butter connoisseur!
I calculated the calories and fat for the recipe, and the whole thing is 4565 calories and 230 grams of fat (roughly, I'm going by memory). It makes about 3 dozen cookies for me, so 127 calories and 6 grams of fat per cookie. But they are sooo worth it!
