Best Ever Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

There are not many things that are better than homemade cookies right out of the oven. I just tried a new cookie recipe and they are YUMMY! I'm taking them for the Fellowship Hour at church tomorrow or I'll be putting on more pounds than I'm taking off with my exercising if these cookies remain at home.

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Cooking Directions

    Prep time: 5 minutes

    Cook time: 10 minutes

    Total: 15 minutes

    1. Position two oven racks in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F.

    2. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, and stir with a wooden spoon until smooth.

    3. Divide the dough into 24 portions, about 1 heaping tablespoon each. Roll each portion between your hands to form a smooth ball. Place the balls of dough on ungreased cookie sheets, spacing them 1 inch apart. You should get about 12 cookies per sheet. Using

    a fork, press on the dough in two directions to form a crosshatch pattern.

    4. Bake the cookies, rotating the sheets between oven racks and turning them back to front midway, until the cookies are puffed and lightly golden, about 10 minutes. Remove the baking sheets from the oven and let the cookies cool on the sheets. Then remove them with a metal spatula.

    Makes about 24 cookies
