Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love peanut butter, I love it in anything... cookies, cakes, crepes, lava cakes (which reminds me - I have a great recipe for that!!) on toast, on sandwhiches... melted over ice cream... any way I can get peanut butter I'll have it!! It's my favorite!!

In high school I used to take my Mom's peanut butter cookie recipe, make it and add chocolate chips all the time and that was my favorite treat!

I haven't made these in years, and it was far overdue... I had forgotten how much I love these. They're moist and delicious..and overloaded with chocolate chips!! YUM!

1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter (softened)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
3 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375 F.

In a large bowl, cream together peanut butter, butter, white sugar and brown sugar until it's well blended. Beat in the egg, milk and vanilla one at a time.

In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt - sift together and stir into the creamed mixture.

Add the cup of chocolate chips in the cookie dough mixture and mix well.

Roll the batter into 1 inch balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.

Bake for 8 - 10 minutes until edges are slightly browned.


Mmmmm just look at that chocolately, peanut buttery goodness......
