  2. mmm looks good! You should try them with Reese’s Pieces instead of the chips if you haven’t before! That is my ultimate fav ๐Ÿ™‚ Love your blog…lots of yummo food!

  3. I love your blog…I check every day to see if you’ve posted something new. I tried these cookies today because I was CRAVING some type of cookie and these sounded divine. Oh my goodness! They are so soft and yummy! I had to make some without chocolate chips because my husband doesn’t like chocolate, but they are still amazing! Thanks!

  4. Hi everyone, thanx a lot for this blog ….. This wqas what I was looking for.

  5. Your blog is fantastic! ๐Ÿ˜€
    Thanks for the share. Been looking for a good peanut butter cookie recipe for a ages!

  6. These cookies rock! They really are the best ever. I put them on my blog. I should probably just change my blog name to “The blog about the blog The Girl Who Ate Everything.” I just can’t help myself you have so much good stuff.

  7. Lovely recipe. I had to try it today – a it turned yum!. Thank you for sharing – . This is how it looks, all thanks to you.

  8. Made these last night. My 4 year old daughter helped me, we had such a great time. We used chocolate chips and mini reeses pieces (that’s what we had on hand). These are SO SO good. Great flavor, super soft, absolutely delicious!
    I just recently found your blog through pinterest, and I LOVE it. Every one of your recipes look amazingly good. I may have a new goal of trying them all!
    Thanks for sharing. Good luck with the upcoming birth! Can’t wait to see pictures.

  9. I made these almost exactly as recipe called for except: I used refrigerator eggs, I only used 1 3/4c chocolate chips and I thought that was too much. Next time I will only use 1 cup. I did not refrigerate , I used 1/4c balls broken in half and rolled quickly into balls. I put on parchment paper and did not grease pan.
    I baked 11 minutes. Turned out perfect size, soft and chewy on inside, crispy on the outside. Put in cookie tin after cooling.

  10. What are your thoughts on freezing these before they are baked??? I need cookies for Friday, but we are going away mon-thurs….thought of making the dough and putting the cookies on a tray and freezing the, that way friday morning I can just pop them in the oven???
    They sound delicious!!

    Thank you๐Ÿ˜Š
