Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chunk Cookies


These have been my favorite cookies since I was a kid. We even included them in the gift bags for hotel guests at our wedding. The cookie dough is just as good as the cookies, so it's always a toss-up whether to actually bake these or not.

3/4 C chunky peanut butter
1/4 C butter, softened
1 C sugar
1 C brown sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
2 1/2 C flour
2 t baking soda
3/4 t salt
a couple large milk chocolate bars, cut or broken into chunks

Cream peanut butter and butter in large bowl. Gradually add sugars, beating well. Beat in eggs and vanilla.

Combine dry ingredients. Stir into creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chunks.

Drop by tablespoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet. Press lightly on each cookie with heel of your hand. Bake at 350, 7 - 10 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
