My friend Sam told me that her son Handsome loves it when she bakes my peanut butter and chocolate rusks. This was such a compliment for me, as kids are honest to a fault about what they like and dislike. After reviewing The Family Cook Book I decided to adapt her recipe for the oat cookies and make a batch of Peanut Butter And Choc Chip Cookies. I sent a message to Sam asking her if the kids would eat these peanut butter and choc chip cookies and I got a voice message back with handsome saying an emphatic no and Pretty Girl (her daughter) saying yes. With only a 50% positive response to my idea, I left a voice message for my nieces who live in Sydney. Sasha replied telling me that my cookie idea is very good, and gave me ‘permission’ to try it. Nadia who is 3 does not like peanut butter. But she wants sprinkles and stuff and icing! So, these cookies only got a thumbs up from 2 of the 4 children asked, but they got a huge thumbs up from Dave who does not like peanut butter! I suppose next on my list will be cookies made with stuff for the cutest little one who really knows what she wants.
Do you have children who know what cookie flavours they like best?

Hehe I’d always give PB cookies a big thumbs up! They must be mad otherwise 😉
I think so too Lorraine 🙂
Can’t go wrong with the PB+chocolate combo! It’s a classic for a reason. 🙂
Kids are certainly honest to a fault! When they don’t like dinner, I’m the first to know it. They love peanut butter though, and I love the chocolate chip and peanut butter combination. So tasty! Thanks for sharing this recipe with us =)
Hope you make it for your kids Laura 🙂
These look soooooooo good!! What a great recipe!! I’m surprised only 2 of the 4 kids liked em?! But if Dave liked em and he doesn’t even like PB I’m sure they’re delicious!
They were very delicious, and a good treat 🙂
A BIG thumbs up from me Tandy 🙂
Thanks Tanya 🙂
Oh, delicious – Tandy – no wonder the young man loves them:)
Thanks Rachel 🙂
I just blogged about peanut butter cookies today and how they’re one of my all-time favorites…. This recipe looks like perfection!
I was amazed when I saw the post come up in my feed this morning 🙂
I totally agree with you. I guess that’s why if you look on a kids menu, it’s always chicken fingers and fries. Because they won’t eat anything else!!
These cookies look amazing. You would get a thumbs up from me!
Thanks so much for the thumbs up!
You know Tandy, I saw your post come up on my feed yesterday and I held my breath as I know we have a history of “great minds think alike”. As Dave doesn’t like peanut butter I don’t think he will like my recipe as it is intensely peanut buttery. Lovely post 🙂 xx
I could not believe it when I saw yours! And there was another one in my feed as well from a blogger in America 🙂
You are absolutely right about kids! Perhaps the best compliment will always come from them. So, congratulations for getting one! Your peanut butter cookies won a kid’s heart!

I think kids are the best critics 🙂
My daughter and her friends will eat just about anything I put in front of them – they are not good with giving constructive criticism though. I do love the sound of these PB/chocolate cookies and those PB/Chocolate rusks??? I love rusks – but never made my own – let alone know that they could exist in such a wonderful combo of flavors!
I am in love with rusks, and you are so lucky the kids don’t complain!
Ahh Tandy, you’ve gone and posted another one of my favs.. I love these peanut butter cookies.
Hope you make these Kay 🙂
I just noticed one thing after reading your post…I baked peanut butter cookies before, but never added chocolate chips…oh! I like oats in it…
Enjoy your week Tandy 🙂
I like the oats idea as well Juliana 🙂
Hi Tandy, peanut butter cookies are my favorite love that you added dark chocolate.
That made them brilliant for me 🙂
Kids here would have a sparkle in their eyes if they would get these cookies. I would have sparkles in my eyes too. 😀
For a moment I even thought I had a plateful of them waiting for me, but alas it’s just another food dream. Thanks for sharing Tandy! 😀
Thanks for the lovely commment Helene 🙂
You know a kid that doesn’t dig PB & Chocchip cookies. #mindblown That’s crazy!I love cookies, like alllllll cookies. If you wanna gift some to me, I would very gladly take em off your hands. 🙂
