Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate Cookies

A friend of a friend brought the most amazing peanut butter cookies to a holiday gathering, and ever since having one of those cookies I have been meaning to ask for her recipe.  Today I was reminded of this when I stumbled upon “the chocolate peanutbutter gallery” while looking for a whole different recipe!

There are so many recipes for peanut butter cookies, it was hard to choose one.  One recipe I found called for 1 c. of peanutbutter, 1 c. of white sugar, and 1 egg.  Others had far more ingredients and almost sounded too complicated to be good…  I found a recipe that sounded simple enough, and modified it only by using whole wheat flour instead of regular flour, dark brown sugar in place of regular brown sugar, and I also threw in a splash of vanilla extract.  The topping is a chopped Hersheys Special Dark bar that has been in my cupboard for far too long, though I’m told chocolate doesn’t go bad, so I figured this would be a good way to use it up…
