This recipe came about by accident when I was making both my husband's favorite peanut butter cookies and my favorite chocolate cookies. I had two small portions of dough left over and decided to combine them into one flavor-filled cookie.

Ohhhh my, these cookies look wonderfully delicious. Have not had pleasure of making them yet, but it's my opinion that since they're from TOH, they would be excellent. Plan on making a batch to give as gifts. Nothin' says *M-M-M* better than peanut butter and chocolate.

This cookie is very good. I suggest everyone to make it. I did cook it at a different temperature. I cooked at 300 for 21 min. It makes the cookie very chewy and soft. thank you D. Beecher

These make a LOT of cookies, but they are very good, I did use 1/2 shortening instead of all butter. I made them for DH's work. I baked 1/2 right away and froze the other half in "rolls" so I have slice and bake cookies.
