Dad's Favorite Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Father's Day is in one week and to celebrate I am partnering with my Celebrate 365 friends to throw a Father's Day Favorites Blog Party.

When I think of my Dad's favorite, the first thing that comes to mind is Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Ever have a food that is always tied to a memory?  Well, whenever I make these cookies I always think of my Dad.  Both my Dad and I have a love of farming and the combination of peanut butter and chocolate 😊 My Dad is the one that gave me the interest and love of farming, and who makes me proud to be carrying on our family's farming tradition.  So it only seems appropriate then that these cookies are a staple for us out in the field and have become a family favorite for anytime of the year.

I hope you enjoy my Dad's Favorite and I can't wait to see all of your Father's Day Favorites.  Feel free to link up as many recipe, gift and activity posts as you would like, and be sure to check out my fellow Celebrate 365 friend's pages to check out their Father's Day Favorites:
