Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
(makes 4-5 dozen)
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups peanut butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar, firmly packed
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 T milk
1 1/2 t vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 t baking soda
1 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
2 cups chocolate chips (I used 1/2 milk chocolate and 1/2 peanut butter chips)
Preheat oven to 350
In a large bowl combine butter and peanut butter and beat until it is light and fluffy. Add the brown sugar and white sugar and mix until combined. Add the eggs and mix for 1-2 minutes, until the mixture is well combined and light in color. Add the milk and vanilla and mix again. Add the dry ingredients and mix briefly. While there are still large spots of flour, add the chocolate chips and then continue mixing until the flour is all mixed in. Let the cookie dough sit for 15 minutes before scooping onto cookie sheets. It will firm up as it sits.
When ready to bake, scoop the dough onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Leave 1-2 inches between cookies to allow spreading. Bake for 10-11 minutes, making sure to not over bake in the slightest. Leave the cookies on the sheet for 2-3 minutes before removing to a cooling rack. The cookies will look lightly undercooked but they will firm up as they cool. (My cookies didn't flatten out very much so I had to flatten them with the back of a spoon as soon as they came out). Cool completely.
These are Super good frozen too!
