Favorite Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies



When it comes to baking I like to make homemade cookies. Many of my made from scratch cookies start out with a basic recipe and then I add a little of this and a little of that. 


 A few years ago my brother game me the recipe for my mother's peanut butter cookie recipe and it was a good recipe but I did change it by adding the chocolate covered peanut butter morsels.  Oh my gosh these cookies are delicious and are now my families favorite peanut butter cookie.
