It’s official, as of today all five of our kiddos are back to school. It’s a bitter sweet day. I thought all I wanted was some peace and quiet and now that we have the house to ourselves, Todd and I feel a little sad. We’ve watched several Hallmarks and now the cooking network and I have to admit it is kind of nice to not have Mom guilt for working while they’re home, but I do miss them. It’s been an awesome summer and I’m so glad I still get to be home with my best friend during the day. Thanks Todd for keeping me company!

So..for those of you looking for something to do before kids get home (ha!), here is a favorite cookie recipe my kids requested for yesterday. Who doesn’t love a classic peanut butter cookie? This recipe is a little more fluffy and cake like. If you want more of a chewy peanut butter cookie, here’s a recipe you’ll also love.

Not to mention there are some great deals on peanut butter throughout the country. Many Kroger sales have awesome deals on either JIF peanut butter or Kroger.

  1. Cream the peanut butter and butter in a large mixing bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Add the sugars, vanilla, salt and eggs. Mix together until whipped and light. Add the dry ingredients and continue to mix until combined. Once the dough has come together, add the two bags of chocolate chips.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick cookie spray. Place golf ball sized cookie dough balls onto the cookie sheet. Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until lightly golden brown (don't over cook or they will dry out). Remove from the pan and let cool until ready to serve.
