Easy, delicious recipe for peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. No one will ever know they took so little work. I like them a little underbaked.

Great! I was out of baking soda and eggs but still wanted to make cookies for a chilly night. I replaced the shortening with butter (same quantity) and did not have chocolate chips even but this turned out great for peanut butter cookies! I also baked for 15 minutes. Read More

I didnt use vanilla extract because I didnt have any and instead of the chocolate chips I used the PB Reese pieces ones.Once I pulled them out of the oven I made a hole in the middle added some chocolate from a chocolate bar and a little PB chip in the centre YUMMMMMM.Using the ingredients from this recipe I made 29 cookies:) THANKS Read More
