Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt

It's Friday night, and I should be having a date with my laundry pile, but...these cookies are SO good that I just had to post them.  These could be my signature baked good, they are that good.  And that is coming for a girl who really doesn't like cookies!  Make these, they are awesome.
