These are so so rich and super good! I love how soft they are, and the peanut butter/chocolate combo is perfect. Get a glass of milk and enjoy!

These were a big hit with the family. I baked them for 9 minutes and this was a perfect time. It made about 5 1/2'dozen cookies for me using a cookie baller from Pampered Chef.

I just got the magazine the other day and needed to make some cookies for new neighbors that just moved in. I took a chance and made these. Wow! What a hit! They will be moved into the new family favorites list. I added a little more flour, but my elevation is around 4500. I also had the small peanut butter cups on hand, so I just chopped a bunch. I ended up getting about 5 1/2 dozen cookies from the single batch. It is also worth it to use Guittard milk chocolate chips! The best!
