{delightful} peanut butter cookies

photo by amy twomey

Homemade cookies never stay in our house long! And it always helps when I can make a batch of cookies that are gluten free. Everyone loves peanut butter cookies, but that extra touch of chocolate is what makes these peanut butter cookies special. I love the smell of cookies baking in a house on a lazy Sunday afternoon. I remember that smell growing up. I hope my kids do too.

preheat oven to 350.
lightly grease a large baking sheet.

mix all ingredients well except for the chocolate chips. Spoon the dough in a heaping Tbs onto the cookie sheet allowing 2 inches between each cookie. Bake 12-15 min, checking until lightly browned. let cool for 5 min and add 5 or 6 little chocolate chips to the center of each cookie pressing them lightly down.
