Question. How many of you gals (or guys) reading this know how to tie a tie? I’m talking about the windsor or half windsor knot. The majority of the guys I ask have no idea how to tie their own tie, including my DB. Yes, that means I tie his tie for him anytime there’s a formal event.
What’s up with that? Even my dad doesn’t know how to tie a tie. He keeps all of his ties knotted, hanging in his closet so that he can just re-adjust it and slip it over his head. Maybe it’s because our generation is so laid back; Boys hardly wear ties on a daily basis anymore so there’s no need to learn how to make a knot. Such a shame– ties are so cute on boys! I’d wear them all the time if I was a guy. Maybe.
Now onto the cookies.. they were not too shabby. If you like peanut butter and chocolate, then yes, you’ll enjoy them. If you don’t really care for that combination, then you won’t really care for these cookies (like me). I did like the look of the hidden peanut butter center, though.

For the peanut butter center:
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 sticks softened butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
- 1 cup cocoa powder (I used Hershey’s special dark)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- First make the peanut butter centers. Mix the three ingredients together until smooth. Set aside.
- Beat butter and both sugars until creamy. Add in the eggs and vanilla.
- Mix the flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder into the wet mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.
- First roll peanut butter cookie dough into about 1 tablespoon balls with your hands. With a medium cookie scoop, scoop chocolate dough on top and on bottom of peanut butter dough. Pinch together on the sides, until the peanut butter dough is covered.
- Place onto baking sheet and bake for 14 to 16 minutes.
