Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

How do you like your cookies? With a bit of crunch? Or at the other end of the spectrum, with only a crisp edge to hold together a soft, gooey middle? Personally, I like a not-too-soft, not-too-hard kind of cookie. Just right – a Goldilocks cookie?

We ALWAYS have a tin of these delicious snacks in my house but I seem to have forgotten to share them with you because I’ve been distracted by constantly looking to post the freshest, most exciting idea I've got going.  

But they're finally here!
