Everyone has a recipe for Chocolate chip cookies. How about peanut butter? I used to make these all the time with my parents. Some of my fondest childhood moments were sitting in the kitchen helping my mother make some cookies. She would let me lick the spoons and if I was really helpful let me have cookies right out of the oven. Those moments would have to be the most well behaved I’ve been as a child, because these cookies are delicious, and when they’re warm you will want to eat the entire batch before they have a chance to cool off. If she left me alone in the kitchen with them she undoubtedly came back to only half a batch of cookies as I would eat as many as I could before she came back. But I was cute, so I was never scolded we just made another batch of cookies to account for what I had eaten.
If you have kids, this is a great recipe to create some amazing memories that they will hold onto for the rest of their lives.
