Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


I love hot-fresh-out-of-the-oven cookies. I love them so much that I usually burn my tongue trying to eat one, literally right out of the oven. The other night DH (Dear Hubby) and I were wanting something sweet to eat and quick. What’s better than fresh baked cookies to get you over your sugar craving? I decided on Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chips. Perfect combination, great with milk, what could go wrong?

Delicious Rating: An easy recipe to cook, as most cookies are. As for the cookie, I didn’t really care for them. It was not peanut buttery nor chocolate chippy. I even doubled the amount of peanut butter so that it would stand out but to no avail. The combination did not mesh, it felt forced almost. They turned out thin and chewy, which is how I like my cookies…just not these. Overall these won’t be made by me again. DH did enjoy them but did say they lacked the peanut butter flavor. Give it a bake and share how they turned out.

Look at all that peanut butter!

Maybe next time I will use some peanut butter chips too, that might be just what this recipe needs.

The criss-cross markings didn’t really stay once baked.
