National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day

In celebration of National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, we teamed up with one Ocala local who’s cookie-making skills are simply legendary.  Lisa Seiffer, Sr. Manager, Financial Planning & Analysis at Signature Brands has been making this recipe since college and they are always a hit.

Lisa says, “I love chocolate chip cookies in general, but adding peanut butter makes these just that much better. My friend and I co-host an annual Christmas cookie exchange party and this will be our 8th year. In addition to baking, I’m passionate about the arts in our community and am Board Chair of Marion Cultural Alliance this year.”
