Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

We might as well start this adventure off with one of my favorite cookie recipes- Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies. They are soft , chewy and oh so yummy! The hub-ster doesnt like these as much because, get this- "they taste like bakery cookies"! Come on what kind of complaint is that?! In my opinion thats what makes them so good. He really only has one cookie that he truly loves. I will post that some day. This recipe is, so far, the most requested of mine. Hope y'all enjoy it.

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

1 1/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. peanut butter
chocolate chips

*Cream the butter, sugars, peanut butter and salt.
*Add the egg, flour and soda and mix until just combined.
*Stir in some chocolate chips.
*Drop by tablespoonfuls on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 min. at 350 degrees.

Tip: Make a double batch and freeze dough balls for later so you always have fresh cookies on hand.

In a Nutshell: Easy recipe. Definitely will continue to make again and again!
