Ruth's Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
32 mins (prep 20, cooking 12)
12 ingredients
5 servings
My mom used this recipe when I was a teenager and I've been making them since then. I love the background flavor of the peanut butter and love that it is not an overwhelming flavor of the cookie. Make sure to store in an airtight container. **Note 2/2010 - I have adjusted the amount of cookies you'll receive - this recipe makes 5 dozen cookies not 4.
