Honey Roasted Peanut Chocolate Chip Cookies

It there anything better than a peanut butter cookie? I am not sure that there is. They are rich, moist, nutty, and they have a subtle savoriness that balances the sweetness making them easy to eat.

I may not know your taste in clothes, perfume, or music, but I know cookies are almost always greeted with great...
