The Best Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie

5

I don't know how many recipes I have looked at for peanut butter cookies, but the one thing I always noticed was that it was one stick of butter to 1/2 cup peanut butter, and the peanut butter never came through as much as I would have liked. This recipe calls for 1 cup peanut butter, and it makes all the difference. I have made these so many times I can make them in my sleep. But the best part about the this recipe is that they turn out perfect every time....every time!!!

10
one stick butter
3/4 cup light packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 cup Skippy peanut butter, smooth or superchunk
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
2 cups chocolate chips
Heat oven to 375. In a standing mixer blend the butter, sugars and salt until creamy. Beat in the egg, peanut butter, baking soda and vanilla. Add the flour. Stir in the chocolate chips. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. My baking sheet is 14x17 and the whole batch will fit on that one sheet. I use a scoop that is just shy of 2" across. You should get 18-20 cookies, and they don't spread that much, which is what I love about them. Take a fork and crosshatch each cookie. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until just starting to brown on the edges.
