Double Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last week I was at the store and I saw an ingredient that I really wanted to try- peanut butter and chocolate chips.  But for whatever reason, I put them back and went on with my shopping.

But those chips have stayed with me.  Niggled at my brain.

Yesterday I was at the store again, and this time, I put them in my cart.  So, when I woke up this morning craving peanut butter, I knew I had to pull them out.

I love to make cookies for my family.  I rarely bought store-bought cookies because I always have a batch of homemade ones ready to stick in a lunchbox or dunk in a cold glass of milk.

So, when my kids come home from school today, they're going to be really excited to find these delicious Double Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies waiting for them on the counter!


This cookie has extra peanut butter to satisfy my craving, and then on top of that (!) the peanut butter chips bring it over the top.

And of course, peanut butter's best friend is chocolate.  These cookies are perfect.


The best part is, they are simple to make, and only use one bowl!  
Just remember, it's a little bit of a dry dough, similar to play-doh that you can squish together into a ball.  Roll it in sugar, then flatten with the back of a measuring cup or something similar.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until done.  Don't overbake- these should be soft with a sugar-crisp firm outer crust.
