Chunky Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

I'm working on several projects, for gifts, but I don't want to show them here on my blog, just in case the recipients read this.  So, today, instead of paper goodness, I've got an absolutely delicious, cookie recipe for you all.  (No, this isn't the same recipe that all the cookies fell flat with yesterday :).  Although, even though they were super flat, they were still, amazingly, delicious!)  It's my most favorite, cookie recipe, right now!
Chunky Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups (12 oz. pkg.) chocolate chips
1/2 cup coarsely chopped peanuts (I prefer them without this ingredient.)

Preheat oven to 375° F.  Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in small bowl.  Beat butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and peanut butter in large mixer bowl until creamy.  Beat in egg and vanilla extract.  Gradually, beat in flour mixture.  Stir in morsels and peanuts.  Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets.  Bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until edges are set but centers are still soft.  Cool on baking sheets for 4 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.  Enjoy!
