You could wait for them to cool, but I prefer to indulge in these cookies right out of the oven. If you enjoy these cookies right away, the melted peanut butter oozes out and somehow make every problem in the world disappear....

Be careful, these cookies will be hot when you take them straight off the baking sheet, but I promise that burning your mouth on molten peanut butter doesn't hurt half as badly as never experiencing these gems. Happy baking, and enjoy.
