Salted Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies...hard to resist

Yum!  I saw a picture of these on Tastespotting and when I clicked on the poster's website (Fakeginger) and saw how simple the recipe was (and that I actually had all the ingredients in my pantry), I had to make these immediately.  Even in the middle of the all the Thanksgiving prep that I've been embroiled in all day, I whipped these out in no time.  The boys LOVED them!  St. James said "I've actually been thinking about a cookie like this."  I even got to use my Citrus Sea Salt that I just made.  The perfect touch on this delicious cookie.

What I'm really excited about is that I got an almost good picture, with the look I've been trying to get!  (The only issue I have with this picture is that the right side of the second cookie is not as sharply focused as it could be...but I like the lighting!!!)

You can get the recipe by clicking here.  Make them tonight for someone you love!

Steph, these look awesome! Thanks for the inspiration . . . a treat as delicious as these might just be enough to distract me from the USC-UCLA game later tonight!

One more question--What kind of peanut butter did you use? I usually keep Laura Scudders creamy in the house, but I've noticed that some recipes work better with the more processed Jiffy-type pbs.

Hey Chandra, yep these are great cookies. I used skippy. Don't know how well laura scudder will work. Do you usually use it for regular peanut butter cookies? If so, it'll do fine. If not, I'd use skippy or jiff. :)
