Peanut Butter Cookies

Soft, fluffy, containing peanut butter and chocolate...that is my kind of cookie; and NOT my husbands! This makes these cookies very, very bad...I am forced to eat a lot more because he is eating a lot less of them, O WELL!
They are also so, so easy...just a few ingredients that you will definitely have on hand. I made these on a whim, and they totally filled my sugar desire!

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. baking soda
chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl mix together all of the ingredients, except the chocolate chips. 

When it is mixed well, add chocolate chips if desired. Drop by tablespoonfuls on a baking sheet, do not flatten.

Bake for 9 minutes or until puffed and golden. The cookies will be very soft, allow them to cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Chocolate and peanut butter is my favorite desert combination. This recipe looks super easy and really good!
