Lee's chocolate, chocolate chip, peanut butter and

I made these this week for my husband to take to work. I used what I had on hand..pistachios and a bag of the white and semi-sweet Nestle swirled morsels. The cookies turned out excellent and the best comments came from one of my husband's co-workers who wants me to open a bakery! Great tasting cookie for chocoholics!

Used peanut butter baking pieces instead of chips and nuts worked great.

tasty cookies

I made these cookies for a work 'snack' day (employees are asked to donate to a select cause - relay for life, juvenile diabetes, etc. - for unlimited snacking). They seemed quite popular. I happened to have macadamia nuts on hand, and I love chocolate and peanut butter. I thought it could have had a stronger peanut butter flavor, but otherwise they were quite tasty.
