Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe taken from Stephanie Cooks
I saw these cookies on another wonderful food blog recently and, with just seeing the title, all I could think of was, "Boy would my husband LOVE these cookies!" (Truth be told, there are many recipes that get that reaction from my mind. I actually have a favorites tab dedicated to a list of foods Robert would get excited to eat.) These cookies have chocolate, peanut butter, and well it's a cookie so what's not to love!

1 stick butter (softened)
1/2 cup peanut butter ( I used smooth, but chunky would be great too)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar (I didn't have any brown sugar on hand so I mixed 1/2 cup white sugar with 2 tbsp molasses)
1 egg
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (I used min kisses!)

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Cream butter, peanut butter, sugar, and brown sugar in a mixing bowl.

3. Add the egg and continue to beat until fluffy.

4. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

5. Slowly add dry mix to peanut butter mix while beating.

6. Stir in chocolate chips.

7. Drop dough by teaspoon onto lightly greased cookie sheets and bake 10- 12 minutes. Cool on baking racks.

This was Robert's special cookie. He made the last one triple the size!
