Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (2)

Pb chocolate chip cookies

I'm a sucker for the combination of peanut butter and chocolate. Unfortunately, Joel does not share that love of mine. The other day in school, one of my resource students was talking about different kinds of cookies that she likes. All of that talk about cookies made me want to get in the kitchen and bake some--particularly peanut butter chocolate chip. I have posted another peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe in the past, which I love, but I wanted to try something different. Enter this recipe from Hezzi D's Books and Cooks…which was perfect, because I was assigned to Heather's blog for this week's SRC Style Recipe Swap! Not only did these delicious cookies take care of my cookie craving, but it made enough for me to share with my students! So thank you, Heather, for making my students happy, which in turn makes me happy!

1/2 cup Butter, softened
1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Sugar
1 Egg
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 3/4 cups Flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Chocolate Chips

In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter, sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Add the egg and vanilla, mix well. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips. Drop by the rounded teaspoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet 2 inches apart from each other. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes for a soft, chewy cookie. Bake for 13-15 minutes for a crisp, golden brown cookie. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
