Peanut Butter Galore

trade off...i make cookies for Liz, she makes me dinner. good deal considering i will take any opportunity to bake esp if everything is provided for me (and i don’t have to do dishes!) and i get food i can’t normally make with just my hot plate in my dorm room haha Liz is a peanut butter fanatic so the request was for peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. recipe adapted from

1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
