Here’s a Classic cookie recipe that I’m sure many people are familiar with. These cookies are heaven in my mouth, I love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter! After making these, I found myself wondering why I only make these at Christmas. These cookies would be wonderful all year round!

1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
