My Favorite Cookie, Ever.
This is a reposted recipe from when I first started my blog. The post got buried and is now deep down in the archives of my blog. It was also back in the day when my photography was horrible, so I don't think these cookies have gotten the recognition they deserve.
These cookies are peanut butter chocolate chip and are the absolute perfect cookie. They are soft and tender with a flaky, crumbly texture. When you take a bite it literally melts in your mouth- not kidding. They are sweet and rich and just the best cookies in the world. Anytime I make them people rave and rave about them. They are by far, without hesitation, my favorite cookie. And John's favorite cookie. And just go make them now, please, I beg of you.
