I really wanted to make cookies, so I went on Pinterest (as per usual) and sifted through my cookies board, but couldn’t find anything that really excited me. I’ve been using my cookbooks less and less with the internet as popular as it is, but I decided it was time to revisit them. Then came these cookies. I know I say everything I make is delicious, because it is, so I’ll explain why these are so delicious. They are one of my new all-time favorite cookies though.
So here you have it. These cookies are delicious because the peanut butter swirl is crunchy, but still melts in your mouth. Plus, the combination of the creamy peanut butter with creamy milk chocolate swirl pairs really well. If it was just a peanut butter cookie, that can get a little boring. If it was peanut butter, chocolate, and another flavor, that would be a little overwhelming. These cookies have it perfected.
Another thing I like about these cookies is that the chocolate swirl isn’t like other fillings, it’s literally just melted chocolate chips. I used milk chocolate because I love love love milk chocolate, but if you love dark chocolate just as much, you should use that. Or you can use semisweet chocolate, since you may already have those in your cupboard. I like that it’s pure chocolate because it’s like a beautiful way of pairing your favorite chocolate bar with a less powerful taste of peanut butter than just using plain peanut butter. Hopefully that at least makes some sense.
So I just spent about 300 words telling you why these are so delicious. Instead of reading my nonsense, I suggest you just ignore it and make these cookies. You won’t regret it.
