Peanut Butter Chip Cookies
I have been truly blessed with the most amazing friends.  Not including my sister and cousin, I can count my friends on one hand. My first ever friend Jessica, we met when we were 4 years old and have been friends since. We were next door neighbors; or maybe I should say next field over. You know in the country, it’s not really next door like city living is, (house on top of houseL) another reason I love the country.  We were always in the same classes in elementary school, until I moved awayL. But I would always visit and over the years we are still the best of friends. Of course with any great friendship there have been ups and downs but at the end of the day, she is and will always be one of my Besties!
Peanut Butter Chip Cookies
Jessie is one of those people who can eat and eat and never gain a pound, I wish. Her favorite cake is red velvet, but I always make her red velvet so I wanted to do something different this time.  Around Christmas time, she hinted about peanut butter cookies while I was baking her mother some chocolate chip cookies. Also here lately she has been hitting up Subway, just for their peanut butter cookies. J  Now I have something different for her rather than just red velvet cake.
Although, I’m not a peanut butter lover, its growing on me and these cookies will definitely be added to my cookie list. Soft and chewy, just the way I like them.
