Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yes, I'm still on a diet...so what do I do? Make cookies to torture myself! I'm taking cookies to a party on Sunday and am tired of all the same old recipes that I usually take so I decided to experiment by combining a few of them. I love peanut butter bars and peanut butter cookies so I wanted to kind of combine the 2. This is what I came up with and I think it is dead on.

This recipe makes a zillion cookies but they freeze well. Ok, maybe not a zillion but truly 7 doz or so. I think the next time I do it I am going to try freezing half of the dough to see how that works. It's awesome to be able to just pull dough out of the freezer and bake. *hmmm*

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
7 doz

3 sticks butter
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. granulated sugar
1 1/2 c. peanut butter (I used creamy because that's what I had but chunky would be good too)
1 T. vanilla
3 eggs
3 c. flour
1 T. baking soda
1 t. salt (I like sea salt or Kosher)
1 1/2 c. oatmeal
1 c. semi sweet chocolate chips
1 c. milk chocolate chips
1 c. peanut butter chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream together butter and sugars. Add peanut butter, vanilla, and eggs; mix well. Add flour, soda, and salt. Combine until blended together. Mix in oatmeal and chips just until mixed, don't over do it!
  3. Roll dough into golf ball sized balls and put on sprayed cookie sheet. Slightly flatten with a cup dipped in granulated sugar.
  4. Bake for 9-10 mins. Let the cookies cool on the sheet for a couple of minutes so they will stay together when you put them on a cooling rack.
