Kirk Spencer’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

A busy day for me, but I thought I’d take a moment and post a recipe from Kirk.  He says this is a family favorite, so I thought we needed share his post.  Because, really, how can you go wrong with Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies?  From Kirk:

The original recipe was one of the peanut butter cookie recipes I’ve got laying around. It made peanut butter cookies that were, well, okay. The peanut butter taste was a bit on the subtle side. I had a bag of chocolate chips around, and one day tossed them in the next batch just as a boost. That made a huge difference. The mild PB works great at making the chocolate chips stand out. They’re pretty close to being our favorite cookie.

No pictures. Make a batch and take your own instead. Trust me, you’ll prefer the result.
