    Wonderful. We halved the recipe and subbed in 1/2 stick cream cheese for 1/2 stick butter and doubled the peanut butter. Would be great as written too.

    Very good, I think better than my regular chocolate chip recipe. The peanut butter flavor is subtle. They did not spread as much as a lot of cookies, which made for a nice, thick cookie.

    Tasty cookie! Nice flavor, slightly crisp outside and chewy inside. Do not over bake! We just made these to leave out for Santa, but we've been eating a few! I did cut the recipe in half since we didn't need that many.

    My granddaughter is allergic to peanut butter, so I left out the peanut butter and used Caramel filled chocolate chips. OH MY!! YUMMY!!

    Love this recipe. Gave some to my husband's aunt and she requested some for her grandson since he loved them so much. I made some first with just chocolate chips then added the peanut butter chips to the other half. Will be making again.
