Since I have the wonderful new cookie press I can make lots
of Spritz.So I decided to make a new
type, Peanut Butter Spritz and since peanut butter and chocolate go so well
together I wanted to find a way to make them work together in this recipe.
Chocolate chips won’t go through the cookie
press so I decided to coat the bottom of them with melted chocolate (my daughter was home to help).The cookies taste great even before coating
them so I left some without chocolate coating for variety.It seemed to work best to work in small
batches when coating them, melting only a little chocolate at a time.It was messy work but the taste was worth it.
Look the cookie tray is filling up nicely.
