One of our friends told us that “those were the best cookies I’ve ever eaten”- need I say more? Probably not, but I will anyway. These cookies are delicious! They eliminate the need to choose between making peanut butter cookies or chocolate chip cookies- why choose when you can have both?
The interesting thing about them is that instead of actual peanut butter, they have peanut butter chips- this gives them a more subtle peanut butter flavor. It adds a richness more than anything. For some reason, the peanut butter chips actually add a little bit of a coffee undertone- which is always a plus!
I made a batch of these cookies the other day for Youth Group, and they all really liked them. My family on the other hand, wasn’t so thrilled. There was much moaning and groaning upon being told that in order to have enough for Youth Group, they were each limited to one cookie. Don’t you feel sorry for them? Because, as you know, we never, ever bake delicious treats just for them 😉
