Amazing Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies!

I made these last week and had so many requests for the recipe that I thought I'd share it here as well. These were truly amazing!

1 C Butter
1 1/2 C Crunchy Peanut Butter
1 C Sugar
1 C Packed Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 3/4 C all-purpose Flour
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
2 C Chocolate Chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 deg. fahrenheit. Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix until blended well.

Slowly add the dry ingredients into the batter until the dough forms. Stir in as many chocolate chips as you want. I used 2 C which was perfect.

Roll into 1" balls and put on baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making the criss-cross pattern. Bake for 9 minutes and don't over bake! Let sit on cookie sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container. These make great chewy cookies! HINT:If you want them softer simply place 1/2 slice of bread in the container with them and your cookies will be really soft! This also works with stale cookies.
