Cream Cheese Cookies

Cream Cheese Cookies - Big, soft, buttery cookies with sweet and tangy cream cheese in the middle!! Oh my....Best thumbprints ever!!!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Bars

I love a good two-for-one deal. Especially when that deal involves peanut butter and chocolate. Sometimes it’s impossible to pick which one I want, and with these bars I don’t have...
