• Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

    These cookies will most definitely satisfy your cravings for peanut butter cups.  I only had unsalted peanut butter, so I added just a little pinch of salt.  Then, I was 1/3 cup short of peanut butter, so I added in some tahini.  The tahini was a bit oily, so the cookies needed a longer bake time and were a bit more crumbly – just something to think about if you’d like to switch this recipe to another nut or seed butter. Allow the cookies to cool partially on the cookie sheet before attempting any removal to a cooling rack.
