Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies

It has been so long since I last posted that I think I may have forgotten how to do this! What a crazy couple of weeks. The end of summer for a teacher is never boring, to say the least. 

Teacher life has kept me out of the kitchen for over 2 weeks (gasp), but I am here now to provide you with a sweet treat that combines two of my favorite things - chocolate and peanut butter! 

Introducing Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies!
