    I made this recipe following every step, but I decided to make a "giant cookie" in a brownie pan. I used the same oven temp but put it in for 13 minutes. It actually turned it into brownies and they are soooo good. Literally the best brownies I've ever had.

    Well, I followed the recipe to the tee and was wonderfully surprised that such a simple recipe could produce such a light, beautifully textured, delicious cookie! In the words of my four year old ''These cookies wont go to waste.'' Enjoy!

    Whether you consider this a chocolate cookie with peanut butter or a peanut butter cookie with chocolate, you are in for a treat. Following in the footsteps of the previous reviewer, I too added a handful (or so) of chopped peanuts and mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. Really, the cookie needed no adornment, but the extras made these over the top decadent and a perfect addition to my holiday trays. Now to hide them until the tins are packed. Made for the "I recommend" Tag Game.

I'm a happily married mother of two and I own a jewelry and accessory business. My husband and I were vegan for six years, we now eat poultry and fish. My husband is a personal trainer and competitive bodybuilder, so it's very important that we eat healthy... too bad I have such a sweet-tooth!
