Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve been using this choc chip cookie recipe for years. It’s foolproof, creamy, chocolatey and chewy.  They are easy to make, don’t take long – 5 minutes prep, 15 minutes in the oven, and taste delicious. I use dark chocolate in my baking because it has a stronger flavour than regular milk chocolate. However, I was craving peanut butter, so I added half a cup. Be still my beating heart. Delicious! I will never make regular choc chip cookies again!

Yields: 12 large     Prep time: 5 minutes     Baking time: 15 minutes

Sift in the flour, baking soda and salt and mix until fully incorporated, about 30 seconds. The mixture will be crumbly.
