Especially when chocolate and peanut butter are involved, you know?

Please, just tell me you understand. If you don’t, I may go on and on about chocolate and peanut butter and why the two together are shear perfection…

Since it’s Friday though, let’s just assume that everyone agrees: peanut butter + chocolate chunks = a cookie combo that never disappoints.

I made these cookies on a complete whim, simply because I was really just in the cookie baking mood. I had other things planned, but cookies pretty much took over my mind once the thought popped into my head. Cookies have a way of doing that .

I also really wanted to bake some cookie for back to school. Nothing is better than coming home from the first day of school to a batch of freshly baked cookies, and of course a glass of ice-cold milk. I mean, of course.

I may not be a school girl anymore, but I can still celebrate little Asher’s first day. Plus, it’s an excuse to make cookies, not that we need one around here.

Back when I was younger and my mom did all the baking in the house, cookies could appear at pretty much any given time. But the first day of school was a sure guarantee that there would be a fresh batch of her famous chocolate chip cookies when everyone returned home. Anyone who tastes her cookies knows they are the best.

No joke, the best. Even though I can make tons of desserts now, mom’s cookies are still my all time favorite. It’s the mother touch that does it for me.

But mom always just made chocolate chip cookies. She never ventured into the worlds of peanut butter, nutella, brown butter or funfetti, not even chocolate chunk. She is an awesome baker, but when it comes to cookies she sticks to what she knows. Me on the other hand? Well, I guess I am a little more daring than she is in the kitchen (which is weird since under any other circumstances she is the daring one).

Not that peanut butter cookies studded with chocolate chunks and Reese’s Pieces are anything bold or daring, but at least there is a little variation. Most importantly though?

They taste incredible. especially warm and right out of the oven when the chocolate is still melty. Oh my gosh, is there anything better? I think not.

The best part is that these cookies are sooo simple. Just ten minutes to prep and ten minutes to bake. No chilling time, minimal dishes (two bowls at most!) – nothing complicated.

Just the way a cookie recipe should be if you ask me.
