Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

chocolate peanut butter cookies

My daughter Geneviève is finally home. She flew from Ottawa on Dec. 18. She had not problem getting to Comox before the big storm. Now I'll be home for Christmas with my 3 kids. My husband is still in Africa and will join us Dec. 29.

Santa was really nice and delivered, at my door, a brand new KitchenAid Stand Mixer. So we have been baking lot's of cookies since Geneviève came home.

I saw this recipe on Joe's Blog and wanted to try it for a while. Since we were in the middle of a snow storm and the kids were outside cleaning the driveway, I decided to make them a surprise.

Wow these cookies turned out very good. We've been eating them, non stop, since yesterday.
