Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies from Brown Paper Packages

There’s something very satisfying about making cookies. They rarely go wrong and there are always takers for them.
Zach complained to me that the four cookies we sent to school with him had something wrong with them – they made his stomach hurt.
Then, last night, he ate another six of them – it had not been the cookies that had made his stomach hurt, he assured me when asked about it.
Tells you these cookies are good, huh?
Anyway, these peanut butter chocolate chip cookies from Brown Paper Packages are great one-bowl cookies to make – very easy, non-fiddly, and very satisfying to bite into. The peanut butter and the chocolate bits ensure that you keep getting little surprises with each bite. And you can leave them in the oven as long as you want to get a soft or crisp texture.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
From Brown Paper Packages

1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
2 ½ cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups chocolate chips (I used chopped-up dark chocolate compound)

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip
Cookies from Brown Paper Packages
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Cream together the butter, peanut butter and both the sugars. (We creamed by hand and you don’t need to get the sugars to completely dissolve.)
Beat in the eggs.
Stir together the flour and baking soda and add to the creamed mixture. Beat just until well mixed.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Roll the dough into balls, then roll the balls in granulated sugar. Place on a cookie sheet about 1 inch apart. Use two fingers to press them down slightly. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Cool slightly before removing from sheet and transferring them to a cooking rack.
