I first made a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie about a year ago, on a whim. I shared them with a friend and her family and I never stopped hearing about how delicious they were. Honestly, though, I didn't think they were that great. But TWICE (yes two times!) in the last week, I have made this recipe and man o man they are DELICIOUS. Chewy, moist, peanut buttery, chocolately. I can't. stop. eating. them.
