Favorite Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Rating: Unrated
Recently I had to make some cookies for a party. Much to my dismay, I was out of chocolate chips and had one bag of peanut butter chips I didn't know what to do with. This recipe was (fortunately) a successful experiment as I crossed my favorite brownie and chocolate chip cookie recipes. My family likes it better than both. It tastes something like a peanut butter cup in cookie form.

These are a great take on the Peanut Butter Brownie. You can't tell the difference between whole wheat and regular flour. My family eats them up EVERY TIME I bake them.

Peanut-Ginger Double-Deckers

Rating: Unrated
Stacking two cookie doughs makes for an impressive-looking cookie. It also means you don't have to pick between your two faves! You just need two cookies that bake in about the same time. I used a half batch of two Allrecipes recipes-Big Soft Ginger Cookies and Chef John's Peanut Butter Cookies--with minor changes (less water and more flour to bulk up the base recipe, for example) and a little water to adhere them.
