Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I made these cookies earlier this week and they were gone in a day.

I am more of a cook than a baker, but I crave cookies all the time. Especially ones with peanut butter. After a quick glance through some old cookbooks, I decided to throw together some ingredients for a chewy pb chocolate chip cookie and they are AMAZING!

Whip these up this weekend or for a family get together this spring.
