Today we were supposed to have parent/teacher conferences at the girls’ school. And I was supposed to bring four dozen cookies for the teacher’s workroom for them to be able to snack on over the next two days. Reese’s Pieces Chocolate Chip Cookies to be exact.
And then they cancelled school. We got close to 2″ of very wet, lake effect snow last night which brought trees down on power lines and over 45,000 people without power. Thankfully we weren’t one of them, but the school was. So now said four dozen cookies sit in my freezer until they can be delivered tomorrow. It not only helps keep them fresh, but helps keep numerous pairs of hands out of them as well!
I’m no stranger to filling my cookie jar with chocolate chip cookies. Kit Kat Chocolate Chip Cookies. Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies. Double Peanut Butter Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies. But this classic peanut butter and chocolate chip combination? Well, it’s a classic for a reason.
