Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

The other day, I had a hankering for chocolate chip cookies, but I wanted something a little different. Looking in my pantry, I spied a jar of Jiff Creamy Peanut Butter. Yes, I am a choosy mother, and I do choose Jiff. Believe it or not, with as much baking as I have done, I’ve never made peanut butter cookies, so I had to go to Big Oven and find a recipe. I found one that looked like what I wanted to make, got Spane, and got started.

Now that we have a Nook HD tablet, I take it into the kitchen with me so I can look at my recipe without having to lug the computer in there. All I do is put the Nook in a clear plastic bag, and set it up against the wall. I think this is much better than paying over $300.00 for a dedicated kitchen tablet, my Nook was under $200.00. I can swipe the Nook through the plastic, and when I was making Christmas dinner, and trying to inject a turkey, then liquid exploded and got all over Spane and the Nook. Neither Spane nor the Nook was injured in any way.

    Hey there! I made these cookies and my kids loved ’em. Thanks for posting this.
    I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

      Maryann, I’m glad you and your family enjoyed the cookies. The Good Plate does use Word Press, and if you go to the Word Press site, you will find there are some plug-ins that specifically deal with securing it.
