It’s a sunny feel-good kind of weekend in Seattle, so I decided to dust off a recipe I love from the family archives: Chewy chocolate peanut butter chip cookies. Guaranteed to make the cookie lovers in your life go:
Beyond being chocolate + peanut butter (truly the most heavenly combination on earth), the texture of this cookie is satisfyingly chewy without being tough. Perfectly paired with a tall glass of cold milk, this is a decadent cookie bound to please the masses year round.
