Peanut Butter Chip Chocolate Cookies

Since I had some PB chips left over from my recipe last week, I decided it was finally time for me to make a chocolate cookie with them in it. I'm surprised I have never made these before. I mean, chocolate...peanut butter...cookie! Seems right up my alley!

These were rather easy to make. In fact, once the butter was soft, I got off the phone with my mom to make them. Then, about 15 minutes later, I called my mom because I forgot to tell her something during our previous chat. I also let her know the cookies were really good.

I do have to say that these are best RIGHT out of the oven. After a couple of days they get rather hard and lose their flavor. And now you have an excuse to eat all the cookies right after they're made. You're welcome.

  2. Sad to say that PB chips are not easily available in our local supermarkets. Otherwise, my family will be happy munching these yummy cookies.
