Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

I'd been SO excited to make these ever since I saw them. I love peanut butter and had been itching to make some cookies. Plus her pictures are so beautiful that any dish would look irresistible!

They were pretty easy to make, even the sugar sprinkling. I used chunky peanut butter, & the batter was a little grainy so it's possible I didn't mix it enough, but they still tasted great so don't worry if you run into that problem. At the end, I put a couple inches of sugar into a bowl, rolled the batter into 9 or 10 little balls, dropped them into the bowl & swirled it around. Did the job well! Make sure to press the cookies down before you put them in the oven, because they definitely will not flatten on their own.

Here's the recipe.

Of course...we actually barely ate any of these. Ha, that's the way things work in our kitchen. We buy or make LOADS of delicious things, and hardly seem to eat them when they are here. Perhaps that's due to there only being 2 of us here, but for whatever reason there is an entire container of stale cookies currently sitting on our kitchen table. Luckily, I gave away quite a few of them. :) And they were well-received!

You won't be sorry if you make them...good luck!

I'd be smiling from ear to ear if I received these cookies, Sarah! :)

They look wonderful and Deb's recipes are always a winner. If you have time, try her homemade pasta recipe - she made ravioli with it. It's to die for!
