Weekend Link Love and A Freebie

I’ve made these cookies twice this week (not the ones in the picture above, but similar)!  So delicious.  I think the results are better if you chill the dough before baking.  Then 3 minutes before removing from the oven place an unwrapped mini peanut butter cup in the center of each one, finish baking, and yummers!

* FREEBIE ALERT * Inspired by my current sweet tooth, I created this printable recipe card (in two sizes) for you all to use and enjoy.  Just download and then print at 100% onto heavy-weight card stock paper.  Cut out around the cards and you’re all set.  If you’d like you could even print a whole stack, tie it with some twine (maybe present it in a pie dish or mixing bowl) and give them as a gift.  Please only use these for personal (non-commercial) use.
