It’s yearbook deadline week, which means one thing…hours of work! (And therefore, very short blog posts.) Sadly, I won’t have time for making delicious cookies like these. But you might! And these cookies really are amazing. Peanut butter-chocolate chip dough is smooshed together with chocolate-chocolate chip dough to make a beautiful swirled cookie. I made these for my lunch table last spring and they were a big hit. No doubt that anyone who tries one of these will love it! They are just too good.
