Peanut Butter Heaven!

I LOVE to bake but I try not to make things that I crave; however, I have failed when it comes to these cookies!!! I LOVE and CRAVE these! I try to convince myself that its okay because they are made with reduced fat peanut butter (hey I need that protein!) and I try to forget that there are 2 sticks of butter in them! I know that they were a big hit today because I had random people come knocking on my cubicle because they heard I had cookies! Part of the reason I wanted to make these were because I was reading about Clumbsy Cookie's peanut butter cookies, that also look delicious!





PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

INGREDIENTS:

2 Sticks of butter, softened
3/4 jar of peanut butter
3/4 C. Sugar
3/4 C. Brown Sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 C. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
12 oz chips

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream the butter, peanut butter, sugar, and brown sugar together. Then add the eggs and vanilla and mix. Next add the flour and baking soda. Finally add the chips.


I use an ice cream scoop so they are moundy but you can use a big spoonfull of dough. Bake them for 8 minutes then check them, possibly need an extra 2 minutes. Let them cool and enjoy! Take them out when they are lightly brown and look somewhat firm, not gooey but not hard! enjoy!!
