GAH!! I love chewy cookies and these cookies are perfectly chewy with just the right amount of crisp around the edge.
Despite being peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, the peanut butter flavour isn't that obvious. The peanut butter lends just enough flavour to keep things interesting. I find regular chocolate chip cookies to be a bit boOoring.
Yes, this post is a little picture heavy but, what can I say? These cookies are beautiful, inside and out!
Crackly top, golden colour, perfectly dispersed chocolate chips...I've got a bad case of the tum rums!!
