Chippy Peanut Butter Cookies

Chippy Peanut Butter Cookies

(Sorry about the photos, I took them with my phone and it really doesn’t have a very good camera so they aren’t the best pictures.)

It’s about time I post again.  Sometimes I can’t believe how much time goes by when I realize I haven’t posted anything.  This might seem like a lame post, but these cookies NEED to be blogged.

I went home to Idaho to visit family this past weekend.  We had a Sunday dinner with people over at my parents’ house.  My mom and I made a dinner of taco soup, salsa with chips, jalapeno poppers and fruit.  I decided to make cookies—everyone had to have dessert. ;)  I whipped up these cookies in a matter of minutes the night before and put the dough in the fridge until the next day. 

Check out the recipe, I got it from Taste of Home.  You know what’s kind of funny, I saw the name Chippy and since I often call our doggy, Chip, Chippy, I wanted to make these.   I didn’t change anything.  Well, except since my mom doesn’t eat chocolate, I left some of the dough plain for peanut butter cookies.

I thought they looked like perfect peanut butter cookies.  With the rest of the dough, I added Hershey’s Special Dark chocolate chips.  (That is the only difference I made, so I won’t retype the recipe.)

I was even nice and “burned” a batch for my dad.  He prefers well done cookies.  I took a photo of those, but it looks horrible, (and not because they were burned) not worth adding to this post.

The cookies flew off the plate and some in my family told me they were seriously perfect peanut butter chocolate chip cookies with a perfect chewiness and crisp on the edges.

I plan to make these again soon since my immediate family didn’t get to taste them (I went home to Idaho by myself).  Here’s the link to the recipe again.

Haha, as soon as I saw these on Facebook I began craving cookies, so I think that's the sign of successful photos! I definitely need peanut butter chocolate chip cookies in my life...
