Peanut butter chocolate chip cookies recipe

I rarely bake cookies. But when I did, decided to try this peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. Surprisingly, I really loved it. It was so yummy that it was wiped clean off the plate in no time.

Only thing that was tedious was waiting for the batches of cookies to be baked in the oven.

Turn the mixer down to slow speed and beat in the vanilla extract and peanut butter.
