Peanutbutter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love handwritten recipes.

I love going home to parent's house and seeing recipes in my grandmother's handwriting.  It always brings back memories of delicious dinners and family gatherings.

And it, of course, memories of my Grandma C in general!

But this recipe is my own handwriting. And I hope that when my children and grandchildren see it, they'll have fond memories of me!


I made these cookies for my dad's August cookie-of-the-month club.

Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, goes together like peanutbutter and chocolate.

PB Chocolate Chip Cookies 
(also commonly called PB C^2 Cookies)
(makes about 2 dozen... depending on how much dough is consumed)

1 C butter (softened)
1 1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 C sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 C peanut butter
1 1/2 C flour
12 oz chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375. 

Combine butter and sugars and beat until creamy and smooth, add vanilla and eggs.  Gradually add flour and mix well. Stir in peanutbutter and mix for about 3minutes. Fold chocolate chips until combined.

Place by rounded spoonfuls on lined cookie sheet and bake for 14 minutes.
