h.b. reese surely did not authorize this: peanut butter candy cookies

These seriously rock.

Baking notes: I used unsalted butter and baked them 8 minutes.

Josh wondered (for aesthetic reasons only) how they'd be without cocoa powder - a tan cookie instead of brown. I'm not sure if/how you'd need to compensate with flour if you took out 1/3 C of dry ingredients.

I looked at the original recipe and Foodaphilia made some interesting changes (molasses instead of brown sugar, more peanut butter). Not sure what her reasons were, but I liked the end result and I'm not going to futz with it.

Definitely not on Weight Watchers.
