Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

OK, so today I'm not having the best day and it's looking like my week is not going to really get much better. One way I know to make it a little more bearable is to bake something. That something is preferably chocolate. Actually peanut butter and chocolate.

I found just the cure for my blues, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies!

The recipe is basically a peanut butter cookie recipe with chocolate chips added. You can use either chunky peanut butter or creamy peanut butter. I used creamy because that is what I had on hand, but I sure bet it would be great with chunky. Maybe next time.

Well I might not be good at much, but at least I'm good at baking! I can pretty much bake just about anything and it'll turn out pretty darn good.

In my dreams I imagine what it would be like to have my own tiny, little small town bakery. It would of course have a few staple specialty items, but on occasion have a few seasonal type items. A place where one could get a sweet little treat and a cup of coffee or a glass of milk. After all what would cookies be without the milk? Still working on that dream though. A girl can dream can't she?
