Salty Sweet Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was craving something a little bit sweet today, and these cookies really fed that craving!
These combine saltiness with the crunch of peanuts and a bit of chocolate. They are a crisp cookie. It was hard for me to just eat one! This is definitely a recipe I will turn to again. I might try to use more brown and less white sugar next time to try and get a chewier cookie. Either way, they taste really good!

March 2007 Cooking Light

Wow, so it's been almost a month. February flew by--I have a lot of trainings/conferences, had to scramble to get some meetings done around my schedule, and have been sick on top of that. I'm actually home from school for the 2nd day today.

March 2007 Cooking Light has some good sounding recipes. I made about 5 or 6 from the Jan/Feb issue. I hope to do better this month.
