Another really good cookie.

I know, how boring, right? how many cookies can I make before it gets old? well, I have to say, these days, the one bowl cookie dough is about all I can muster. Especially with my 2 year old helper bee. he loves to stir, and to use a heavy hand with the sprinkles. Anything more elaborate than a cookie and he likely loses interest. so, we keep it simple around here for now. and good, we keep it good.

These cookies, I have made like 5 times in a row. I have made them crunchy and chewy and my last adaptation to the recipe was to use all whole wheat flour in place of white. and, they are still damn good. so good that I baked 12 and then proceeded to eat the other dozen in cookie dough form before they could even hit the baking sheet.

Try them. if you like peanut butter and chocolate, you might be hooked.
