THE EXTRA TASTE of peanut butter in the middle of the cookie is a delicious surprise the first time you bite into one. It's a nice, soft cookie and fun to make with little helpers. Kids love to put that extra dab of peanut butter in the middle and snitch some at the same time. -Jeannette Mack, Rushville, New York
