The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies I Have Ever Made (with Peanut Butter Chips)

I wanted chocolate chip cookies last night, but to be honest my chocolate chip cookie baking skills are only so-so.  And that is being kind.  I had some peanut butter chips and was going to take the easy way out and make some peanut butter chip cookies.  I am much better at peanut butter cookies.

But the kids wanted chocolate chip.  And my husband suggested that I put some peanut butter chips in them too.  And although I could have just thrown some peanut butter chips into one of the many chocolate chip recipes I already have, I did some Google-ing and I found a recipe for these:

And as you can see they actually turned out pretty darn good.  And they were YUMMY!  And did I mention they weren't flat as pancakes!  It could just be Texas, but I think it was the recipe.  Or maybe a little of both!

I got the recipe from For The Love of Cooking and it is one I will be using it again.  I tweaked it a little.  Some on purpose (I always use more vanilla than a recipe calls for) and some by accident (she called for 3/4 cup of sugar and 3/4 cup of brown sugar.  I only used 1/2 a cup of each by complete accident, but they turned out so good that I will do it that way again.

Here is my version of the Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

What you need:

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened
2 large eggs
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 t vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup of peanut butter chips

What you do:

Preheat oven to 375°

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl and mix thoroughly with a whisk or sift together.

Beat butter, white sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large bowl until creamy.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Mix in the flour mixture in three parts.  Then stir in chips by hand.

Drop small spoonfuls onto an un-greased baking sheet. (I use a scoop to make sure that they are all the same size, that way they bake evenly)

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool on wire racks.

Try not to eat them all in one night.

The recipe made three dozen and that was minus the large amounts of cookie dough that was consumed by someone in the house.  We will not name any names.

What is your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe?

I use to have problems with SuPeR FLAT cookies. I think it has something to do with elevation, but I read somewhere that if you add just add a little bit more flour in your recipes, say just 1/4 of a cup or less, it would make the cookies more fluffy. Guess what it works! I've been doing it ever since. I'm definatley going to try these yummy cookies for family home evening tonight. Thanks for sharing! :)

Texas makes everything better!!

The year we lived in Utah was the year that my baking sucked. I did try the flour thing as somebody else mentioned, but then they were cakey - ICK!

Hi there! I read this on my lunch break at work and made them tonight because they sounded so good! Luckily I had all the ingredients except the peanut butter chips but I had butterscotch chips and used those instead. I cut the recipe in half since it's only me and my daughter at the moment. They came out great, thanks for sharing!
