Peanut Butter Stuffed Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies by Not Your Momma's Cookie

There is really no method to my madness in the kitchen.

Sometimes I’m quite meticulous about planning a dessert I have in mind. Sometimes I’m throwing things together to see what works.

This one, my friends, was definitely the latter.

I was working within the confines of an almost bare pantry. I love me some stuffed cookies (like this or this), but I didn’t have anything other than peanut butter. It sounded kind of weird. But, could it work?

YES. Oh yes it can. I almost debated posting this since, because of the cookie mix, it isn’t much of a “recipe.” But, with such a unique flavor combination, I wanted to share it with you guys. These were quite the husband pleaser!
