My weakness

Have I told you cookies are my weakness? Chocolate is too. I know you've heard that. Homemade chocolate chip cookies could very easily control my life. Now, what about chocolate chip peanut butter cookies?

I will not let them control my life...

I did not eat all the cookies I was taking pictures of. I have more self control than that...

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup firlmy packed dark brown sugar
