Marbled Chocolate Peanut Cookies Recipe

Marbled Chocolate Peanut Cookies Recipe

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.
