Weekend Recipes - Chocolate Peanut Butter Thumbprint Cookies

So you all know that I've been sharing some of my disasters in the kitchen since the wedding.  How about some of the successes?  I love it when I read blogs and people have shared simple recipes that become favorites of Bruce and mine.  Hopefully some of you out there reading will be able to use some of the recipes I've found!!

These cookies are not only easy, but they're also really filling.  Not that I would condone skipping meals or anything, but if you happen to miss one and you're on the go one or two of these cookies will quench your hunger and keep you going.
