These are the Best Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cookies I have ever had. Stephanie posted them the other day over @ Dispensing Happiness, and let me tell you....these dispensed my happiness!!
I have a neice spending the night and she's 16, while my kids are 10, 7 & 5. So to keep things interesting I decided spur of the moment to whip these up. She likes to bake so thought she'd appreciate something tastey, and who doesn't like chocolate??!!
I made a few variations to the recipe. I added 1/4 tsp. almond extract in addition to the vanilla that it calls for, and I was VERY GENEROUS with the vanilla. Also, I used Skippy peanut butter instead of natural, and my milk chocolate was Hershey's with almonds.
Thanks Stephanie for posting this tastey treat.
On a different subject, the week went so well with Baby J.D. I found myself thinking this morning that Noonie and his wife ought to have another baby so I can babysit it as well! You all will laugh at me a few months from now when he gets busier and busier and I'm not just gushing anymore about how easy it is. Oh well, I am enjoying this phase now anyway. Just as all phases of a child's life are special, this phase seems extra special; all the gurgles, coos, smiles....are so sweet!
