Rebecca's notes for this recipe:
Chocolate peanut butter cookies with a delicious smooth peanut butter center. It takes a bit of time, but is well worth it. Enjoy!

These cake-like cookies melt in your mouth with every bite! Never mind the fact that they're filled with a deliciously "magic" peanut butter filling.... yum!
