It's cookie time!!

So I will let the cat out of the bag ... one of my favorite movies to watch growing up was Troop Beverly Hills with Shelly Long... you know it's cookie time!! I used to love singing that little diddy with my sister.  Well its not girl scout cookie time but it is Christmas cookie time!!  Tomorrow night I am having a cookie swap with the dwarf house girls and I am so looking forward to it!!  Tonight I made my moms famous skillet cookies.  I was reminiscing about the baked goodies my mom used to make around the holidays and this was always one of my favorites!! Chocolate and peanut butter - seriously you cannot go wrong!! So I called my mom for the recipe and of course she couldn't give me exact measurements and this as you know was driving me crazy!! So I googled them and of course they are not called skillet cookies I found them under no bake peanut butter cookies - to me they will always be good ole skillet cookies.  They were super easy and deliciously yummy!! Thanks for the recipe and memories mom!!

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
