My Husband's Favorite PB & Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are my husband's new favorite dessert in the whole world. When I make them, he wants to eat them ALL himself! Thankfully this recipe makes a ton of cookies (about 3 dozen), so you will be able to share them with friends and family without your significant other having a major freak out ;). They are super easy to make, so you can whip up a batch just about anytime. Try substituting Reese's peanut butter chips or M&Ms to make these cookies extra special. Great for a quick snack or as the perfect addition to your child/spouse's lunch box, these cookies will get you tons of compliments! No one ever needs to know how easy they are to make!

*recipe adapted from Baking

2 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup softened butter

1 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar

1 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large room temperature eggs
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars until light. Add peanut butter and whip on high, one minute. Add eggs, one at a time, then vanilla. Scrap down sides and mix for 2 minutes on medium. Add your dry ingredients a little at a time, scraping down the bowl periodically. Stir in chocolate chips. Using 2 spoons sprayed with cooking spray, drop 1 inch balls (don't worry about forming them) onto a greased cooking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes at 350. Remove from baking sheet to cool.
