Peanut butter chocolate chip cookies
I can not emphasize how AMAZING these cookies are. Cathy had sent John home with one of her amazing cookies for me to try. They were so good and I was dying for more... so I decided to make a batch of peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. I didn't have any oatmeal so I looked for a recipe and came up with these. Words can not express how much I love these- soft, chewy, peanut buttery goodness. Try them- you WON'T be disappointed.
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup chunky or smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate chips)
Preheat oven to 375°.
Cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars until light. Add the egg and mix until fluffy.
Blend the flour, baking powder, soda and salt together well. Add these dry ingredients to the butter mixture. Add the chocolate chips.
Drop cookie dough by teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 375°.
