Cookie Jar

I have had a cookie jar on my wish list for years, I have a Christmas cookie jar but I don't have an everyday cookie jar. For those of you that don't know my husband has a major sweet tooth/ snack habit. He loves all those gross sugary things that are horrible for you, like Twinkies he can eat a whole box of Twinkies in one sitting. GROSS! He also loves all kinds of Little Debbie treats. I have refused at this point to buy these things anymore, they are expensive for the product itself and I don't really want my Molly to get into the habit of eating them. As a result I have gotten into the habit of baking my own sweets, thus the cookie jar was becoming more and more important. Enter a fabulous cookie jar as a birthday present from my mom. It is brilliant, and exactly what I would have picked if I had bought it for myself. Since then I have made cranberry white chocolate chip cookies, my ultimate chocolate chip cookies (see picture) and the BEST peanut butter chocolate chip cookies EVER! I have made two batches in a row they are amazing, I think it is the amount of brown sugar in the recipe that makes it so chewy and fantastic.

cup unsalted butter

1 1/2

cups brown sugar

1/2

cup sugar

1/2

teaspoon salt

2/3

cup creamy peanut butter
