Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

My senior year of college, I was an R.A. in apartment style dorms. From time to time we would cook meals and share them as a hall.  One of the best cooks was a girl named Chelsea.  I still remember her awesome chicken enchiladas.  But my favorite thing she ever made was her Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Oh my word.  These are the absolute best cookies on the planet.  She made them for a surprise on my birthday that year and I do believe that was my favorite present! I made sure to get the recipe before the year was over and I’ve been baking them ever since.  Who for, you ask? Oh, ourselves, family, friends, meals for families with new babies, meals for families who are grieving, and Rockstars.  Yes, rockstars.  My husband worked for a band for awhile and I got to thinking, “Man, they probably would really enjoy some home cooked food.” So, I baked them these cookies.  They devoured the entire 3 tupperware containers I delivered them in and couldn’t stop talking about them.  I made them a few other times for them and each time my husband told them my cookies were on the way, their eyes lit up. I felt the epitome of cool when the bass player tried some other cookies from a catered meal and looked over to me and said, “Well, they’re good, but not as good as YOUR cookies!”  So, yes, friends.  These cookies are so good they can even melt a cool rockstar’s heart.  Come on, let’s get to rockin and rollin these cookies out of your oven, sweet lovin!
