Unlike these peanut butter cookies, it's best to use no-stir peanut butter as it helps hold the cookies together.
Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chips
½ c. granulated sugar
½ c. packed brown sugar
½ c. butter
½ c. peanut butter (must be solid at room temp)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
1 c. chocolate chips
Heat oven to 375˚. Mix sugars, butter, peanut butter, vanilla and egg in medium bowl. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in chocolate chips.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place about 3 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Press dough to ¼ thickness with fingers. Bake about 8 minutes or until edges are light brown (centers will be soft). Cool 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.
