I dipped the front 1/2 of the cookie in chocolate and then the back other half in chocolate. I've been told these are some of the best peanut butter cookies folks have had. will be trying to freeze to bake later in the next few months. right now, I can't make enough to keep around.

Wonder if this dough could be rolled into log, chilled and sliced? Been making "roll into ball" cookies and need easier ones :)
