I am a firm believer that everyone (who enjoys baking) should have a staple, go-to cookie that can be whipped up at a moment’s notice. These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies have been made in my family since I can remember and have become my staple cookie. Adapted from my Great Grandma Milly’s Betty Crocker Cooky (yes, cooky with a “y”) Book, these little sweet treats are some of the BEST cookies I have ever tried. Events such as work parties, picnics or for no reason other than a sweet tooth, I hope you will find these cookies as easy and delicious as I do! Enjoy!
