Sensing a Theme Yet?

Surprise, surprise...yet another chocolate and peanut butter recipe coming your way.  This time I made some cookies for my husband to take into his office here in Fort Worth.  His colleagues have been so kind to us, and even read this blog!  They definitely deserve some cookies!

You are right, he's already been in the office for more than 2 weeks now, but we were without a working oven.  No oven = no cookies.  I was on the verge of DTs and jonesin' for bakin', but sweet relief came last night.  The oven is fixed and I can start to bake my way to happiness again.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Made 2 to 2 1/2 dozen cookies

1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
12 oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  

Cream butter and sugars.  Add peanut butter, egg, and vanilla.  Blend well.

Stir in baking soda and baking powder.  Add flour 1/2 cup at a time, in between blending well.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop by rounded spoonful onto an ungreased baking sheet.  

Bake for 9 or 10 minutes until edges are set, but centers are still a bit soft.  Once you remove from the oven, let the cookies cool slightly for 4 or 5 minutes on the baking sheets so they can firm up a bit.  Let them finish cooling on a wire rack.
