On a whim, I decided to bake some cookies late the other night. I'd had a serious craving for peanut butter for several days, and I've been dreaming of some type of peanut butter sandwich cookie. But, that type of thing was just too much work for 10 o'clock at night so, the peanut butter chocolate chip cookie was born.
This is your classic chocolate chip cookie, just with the addition of peanut butter. And oh my goodness, it is so, so good. I don't buy sweetened peanut butter, so this addition gave the cookies a fantastic salty-sweet taste.
I may not be satisfied with "regular" chocolate chip cookies ever again.
Oh, and if you're a peanut-butter-lover and a dough-eater, don't even bother baking the dough, just dig right into this stuff because nothing in the world will make you happier. Except maybe mixing it with ice cream.
And on that note, I'm off to the store to buy ice cream.
