Choc Chip Peanut Cookies

Peanut & Chocolate Chip cookies

These cookies are easy to make and favourite of many. You can substitute the chocolate chips for M&Ms. Instead of peanuts, you can use chopped walnuts or cashew nuts too. You can also roll out the dough in between two plastic sheets to 0.5 cm thickness and then use a 2 cm or 3 cm diameter round cutter to cut out into round cookies. Bake these cookies for yourself or as a gift for someone.
