This recipe combines two cookie favorites — peanut butter and chocolate chips and I thought they were delicious. Of course, I have rarely tried a cookie that I didn’t like. When I made these cookies I used Jif extra-crunchy peanut butter because I like crunch. You may find yourself making these often.

PEANUT BUTTER
CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
1 stick margarine
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter (crunchy is good)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups unsifted flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup or more mini chocolate chips — I used 3/4 cup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter, sugars and peanut butter. Add vanilla and eggs. Mix, but do not sift, flour, baking soda and salt and blend in thoroughly. Add chocolate chips. Roll by tablespoons in granulated sugar, then flatten with a fork or juice glass.
Bake one cookie sheet at a time and watch carefully. They should cook only until set and golden, so they remain chewy. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. I found that the shorter cooking time worked best in my oven.
