Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

My son has to do some home cooking for his Home & Careers class.  Initially he did not bring home the project sheet and just said he had to make a cookbook, so I didn’t object when he chose four cookies and a cake for his booklet.  Whatever, he’s eleven.  When I found out he was supposed to cook them all asap, I had to object, even over the Christmas season.  We were not just going to make batch after batch of cookies for his homework.  He was more or less going to have to go along with what our family was going to eat.  So it ended up being, 2 cookies, a cake, muffins, and a soup.  He just finished the last of them this weekend.

With my assistance he made: Lentil Soup and Mint Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies, Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake, Cinnamon Sugar Muffins, and then today, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies.  He got to make the executive decision to put chocolate chips in only half the cookies, and then find out that everyone including himself preferred them with.
