The Perfect Peanut Butter Cookie

Cookies, cookies, cookies! They are our favorite! So here, yet again, is another spectacular cookie recipe. This is the best, most simple peanut butter cookie recipe. But you get to insert some of your creativity and personality into it. First, are you going to use creamy or chunky peanut butter? Will you go with chocolate chips or no chips? Will they be semi sweet or milk chocolate? What about using peanut butter chips? Or both!! Yes, I know, I am blowing your mind right now. But play with it, see what you and your family like. My favorite is creamy peanut butter with milk chocolate chips. But the hubby is in love with chunky peanut butter with peanut butter chips. Can you say dilemma?? I will leave it to you and yours to battle over what you think is the best. Have fun!
