Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies are a hit wherever I take them! A while back, I made them to take on a fishing boat. I made 24 cookies. I did my best to hide all 24 cookies. After a few hotel lobby encounters with football players, and a husband who I love too much not to share a few with, I ended up with about 6 or 8 Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies left for the boat come fishing time. I felt mean but I had to start saying no to people wanting the cookies that weekend because I had already promised the captain of the boat that I would bring these. I would hate to disappoint... after all, he was kind enough to take us on his boat to catch the big ones. *Pic Below

I am glad I saved a few of these because they were a hit while out fishing. It is always good to have something substantial in your stomach while out at sea. I think it helps with sea sickness. I consider Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies something substantial. Right? I will be making these again in about a week for Miami Dolphins Training Camp as Dan's fellow Miami Dolphins love them. And for good reason. They are moist and delicious! No fuss, quick and easy, flourless, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. They make me want to watch my late night TV shows with the cookie jar in my lap.
