I am a sucker for peanut butter and chocolate, so of course I chose chocolate chips over raisins. You'll notice most of my cookie recipes have chocolate chips in them and it's because I'm a chocoholic. I can't help it! My mom used to make these cookies when we were little so I know them well. I hadn't made them in ages, and when I had a playdate to go to I decided it was a good time to bake them again. I brought them along and they were quickly devoured. The two cookies in the photo above were the only ones that made it back! Thank goodness, because you know I would have eaten the entire batch by myself.
