So we have a bit of a theme going this week on the blog.
Monday we had peanut butter pancakes.
Tuesday we had chocolate chip cookie dip.
So take the best part of those two recipes – the peanut butter and the chocolate chips and you have today’s recipe!
The Best Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies.
We had an event at our home this weekend that I needed to make some treats for and I was craving peanut butter cookies. I went to my blog to get the recipe and guess what!!?? It wasn’t there. I had never posted my peanut butter cookie recipe. What kind of food blogger doesn’t have a recipe for peanut butter cookies on their blog!!?? Yikes! I decided I better fix that problem right away so today you are getting my favorite and the BEST peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe.
Of course you could make these without chocolate chips but since I think peanut butter and chocolate is basically a match made in heaven my peanut butter cookie have chocolate chips in them!
When I add chocolate chips into the dough I don’t roll the balls of dough in sugar like I do if I’m not using chocolate chips. I just form them into nice little balls and place them on the cookie sheet.
And then I like to smoosh them down a bit with my hand so they spread out a bit more when they are baking. It’s totally a personal preference.
The next step is grab a nice cold glass of milk and a couple of cookies, maybe more than a couple because these babies are good! On a cookie scale of 1- 5 – they are a 5!! That means you can eat five of them with no worries!!
