"My husband created these wonderful cookies one weekend when we were craving something sweet and boy did they hit the spot! Chocolate and peanut butter have been, and will always be, a perfect combination!"
2-1/4 cups flour*
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar*
3/4 cup brown sugar*
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1-(11.5 ounce) bag of milk chocolate chips
1/3 cup chopped peanuts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix together flour, baking soda and salt. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars. Add vanilla extract. Mix in eggs until thoroughly combined. Add dry ingredients, 1/4 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Spoon about 2 Tablespoons of cookie dough onto a greased cookie sheet and using a fork, flatten each cookie by making a criss-cross configuration by pressing down with the fork one direction and then the other direction. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-12 minutes.
*For High Altitude: Increase flour to 2-1/2 cups, plus 2 teaspoons of water. Also increase sugars to 2/3 cup each.
