Chocolate Cookies with Peanut Butter Chips
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups butter, at room temperature
2 eggs, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
3/4 cup cocoa (I used Hershey's Special Dark)
10 oz peanut butter chips (I used Reese's)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium sized bowl combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, combine butter and sugar and mix until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla mix to throughly combine. Slowly add flour mixture until totally combined. Carefully stir in peanut butter chips. Drop by the tablespoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet, leaving about 1/2 inch spaces between each cookie. Bake 8-9 minutes. Do not over bake! Cool slightly then serve.
Yields: between 3- 4 dozen cookies, depending on cookie size.
