Our kids most requested cookies are peanut butter and chocolate chip, so I came up with this recipe combining those favorite flavors. The two doughs swirled created a lovely pattern on the cookie. There's no need for additional decoration.—Lori Kesinger, Baker, Montana
“These are beautiful for holiday parties. They're a big hit each time! To make them extra-special, use a new small paintbrush to lightly dust the almonds with a gold luster.” —Deb Holbrook, Abington, Massachusetts
