    I would certainly eat these peanut butter & chocolate chip cookies! I’d go even further and add a little coconut and almonds though. YUM!

  53. G says

    These cookies look so good, unfortunately no one in my house likes peanut butter except me and I can’t eat chocolate! My all time favorite cookie is brown sugar cookies, they are very much like regular sugar cookies only not as sweet and with a richer taste. My husband absolutely loves my spice cookies,he and my step daughter will sit and eat a couple dozen straight from the oven. I recall one time when I made some and i made five dozen cookies, it was the first time I’d make them for them and I ate two or three cookies when I was making them but the next morning, the two containers that I had put them in were nearly empty. There were literally less than a dozen left. They loved them so much they nearly made themselves sick off of them. My hubby said it was the best cookie he had ever had in his life…. I don’t eat store bought cookies at all and I have spoiled my hubby into being the same way, he now things chips a hoy and other store cookies are kinda gross. lol. This would come in handy. I had a kitchen aid that I used so much the motor finally burned out in it,….I’d absolutely love to have another, I’d use it all the time. There are so many things I don’t make because all I currently have is a hand mixer. Thanks for the chance to win and I’ll find an occassion to make these wonderful cookies of yours for someone….

  54. says

    My favorite cookies aren’t really cookies, but whoopie pies! I can’t help it! I love those things! My favorite one that I make is a Red Velvet Whoopie Pie with cream cheese filling! To die for!

  55. Calien Laure says

    My favorite cookies change with my moods, but I always love chocolate and peanut butter. These are going to the top of my favorite list!

  56. Vickie says

    We have soooooooo many favorites..but, the one cookie I make all through the year is oatmeal raisin with pecans..not bad for breakfast if in a time crunch as they are a bit healthier..right ? 😉

  57. Jennifer Aikens says

    I discovered over Christmas that I am very partial to the soft molasses cookies! Sometimes it is just the simple things that are the best.

  58. @frugaliscious says

    my whole family loves chocolate chips cookies but we also enjoy having peanut butter chocolate chips cookies – so yummy!

  59. Becca says

  60. Cindy B says

    My favorite cookies are white chocolate macadamia nut cookies but I’m sure going to give these a try they sound yummy.

    These cookies sound delicious! Unfortunately, my son’s allergic to eggs so we have to be more creative with our baking. My all time favorite cookies are made with my mom’s chocolate chip recipe. With my son, though, we’ve had to go to an egg free recipe. Still delicious, but there’s nothing like “mom’s.”

  100. V Scott says

    I’m good with most chocolate and peanut putter combinations. Chocolate cookies with peanut butter chips. Peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips.

  101. tammy ramey says

  102. says

    Some form of chocolate chip, whether plain or with reese’s cups or m&m’s. Peanut butter cookies or soft & chewy sugar cookies are probably a fairly close second.

  104. Amanda Saucedo says

    Oatmeal raisin is my favorite of all time; but lately I am OBSESSED with these butterscotch brown sugar cookies I found. Obsessed.

  108. Teri Melton says

    I have always loved Oatmeal Chocolate Chip. I remember the old commercial, “If it’s good for them in a bowl, it’s good for them in a cookie” and made many a batch of them when my kids were growing up. But I really like your recipe. I haven’t made cookies in a while but you have inspired me to try yours. My mouth is watering.

    I love any cookie straight from the oven, but I think my favorites are peanut butter and chocolate chip. Thank you

  122. Robyn L says

    my favorite cookie is anything that fits in a coffee cup to dunk; love doing this.
    my favorite is Raisin Drop cookies

  123. says

    Those sound soooo good right about now. Mind baking some and dropping them off at my house? I have to say that I would’ve never considered cookies with coffee, not much of a coffee drinker, but it does sound like something I’ll have to try just to mix it up from the cookies and milk thing. Do you think that cookies can be for breakfast?
    BTW: My favorite cookie is a traditional chocolate chip but I’d prefer the chocolate chunks instead of chips.
