I have been making these peanut butter truffle cookies for years, and they always seem to disappear  almost immediately.

I first posted this recipe in 2013, when the blog was pretty new, and since I make these cookies all the time, I thought I would update the old photos.

Have you started your holiday baking?  When I was a kid, my mom, sister, and I used to spend every weekend in December baking for Christmas. Cutouts were always a favorite, but for eating I LOVED my mom’s hello dollies aka 7 layer bars.

Now that I have to do the cleanup, I would love to skip the cutouts, but of course they are Stella’s favorite, and she is quite the artist. I don’t make 7 layer bars because my kids will not eat nuts or coconut and I do not need an entire pan for myself. We make gingerbread men, and thumbprints, and dozens of chocolate chip [4]. I love flourless cookies like these hot cocoa cookies [5] and peanut butter kiss cookies [6].

But for ease, you cannot beat these peanut butter truffle cookies. They can be done in less than 30 minutes from start to finish. Using a cookie scoop makes them even easier, but is totally not needed. One bowl and a spatula plus a few pantry staples are all you need.

But if you want to have some left for Christmas, you’ll need to double or triple this recipe. They disappear FAST.
