Peanut Butter Cocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve been on a cookie making spree lately, but that’s simply because I love to eat frozen cookies. I think I prefer them over fresh from the oven warm cookies. I love these cookies because they remind me of a Reese’s peanut butter cup only in a cookie form. mmmmyummmm!
