Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Cookies

The other day I wanted to make some cookies for my son and he loves Reese’s peanut butter cups, so I decided to make my own version in a cookie.  So here is my recipe for Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chip Cookies.

2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream together butter, sugars and vanilla until combined.  Add eggs and mix together.  In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt.  Add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients.  Add both chocolate chips and peanut butter chips.

Don’t they look happy together? Drop cookies onto greased or coated cookie sheet and bake 8-10 minutes.

They really do taste like a peanut butter cup in a cookie form! They also keep well in an airtight container.  I sent these to him at college through the mail and he said they tasted great.

What is your favorite candy? Have you had it in a cookie?
