. . . Cookie Time Tuesday-Chocolate Peanut Cookies . . .

I can't tell you what a challenge finding a new cookie recipe has become.  I try so hard to keep bringing you something new but it can be difficult to do.  I bought a Taste of Home Cookie cookbook for the weeks when I'm stumped and just don't know what to make--this was one of those weeks! 

I had to have another epidural steroid injection in my back this past Friday so that meant 2 to 3 days of not doing a lot of standing or lifting per doctor's orders so I was in a time crunch to get these done to share with you today.  The one good thing about being in bed or on the couch for a few days it gave me plenty of time to look for recipes.  When I came across this one in the Taste of Home Cookie cookbook I knew it was a Cookie Time recipe for sure!  My husband and son don't care for peanut butter (crazy, I know) but I love chocolate and peanut butter mixed together so this recipe was calling my name..."Lindy, make me now.  Lindy, make me now".  Thanks to my husband making a late night grocery store run for the mini Reece's Cups I can now share these delicious little morsels with you! 

I loved all the chunks in these cookies but if you didn't want them chunky just chop up the nuts and finely dice the peanut butter cups up and even use mini chocolate chips but personally I think the big chunks made them especially yummy.
