Believe it or not, I got this recipe off of the back of a Kroger brand peanut butter chip bag. I have no idea what made me want to try it a couple of years ago, but I am so glad I did. These cookies are absolutely wonderful. They are very soft and pretty much just melt in your mouth. They also stay soft for days. On this last batch, my dad described them to me as "creamy". Have you ever had a creamy cookie before? Then it's about time you did. Enjoy!
