Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
If you love making 30 minute meals and quick desserts, you’ll love these cookies.
The trick to this great texture is not cooking them too long, especially if you will be eating them later. If you want to eat them right from the oven, then you’ll need to add a few minutes to the cooking time, or they will be too gooey. But if you want to eat them later, then they take just 7-8 minutes too cook for the perfect texture.
The cookies have the delicious flavor of peanut butter in every bite. If you love peanut butter recipes, you will have to try this one. The chocolate chips add just the right amount of richness make this a melt in your mouth moment!
