Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies or PBC's (for short)

"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.            

"We love to bake on a Silpat or silicone baking sheet.  The cookies never stick."
