Manda's Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I don't know who Manda is BUT she sure knows how to whip up a fabUlous batch of peanut butter chocolate chip cookies.  I found this recipe under  I love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate together. The saltiness of the peanuts and the sweet taste of bittersweet chocolate chips (72% cacao).  This is the first time using this recipe and from the looks of it going to be a favorite, according to my grandkids who loved the batter.  The recipe is very easy and the batter is yummy.

2 1/4 cups of flour

1 Teaspoon baking soda

1 Teaspoon salt

3/4 Cups of butter (softened)

1/4 Cup of peanut butter (Jiffy's the best according the recipe and I concur

3/4 Cup sugar

3/4 Cup brown sugar

1 Teaspoon vanilla extract

2 Eggs

1 Cup chocolate chips  ( I used a premium brand of E. Guittard bittersweet chocolate 72% cacao but the usual chips are what the recipe calls for)

Preheat oven at 350 degrees

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl and set aside.

Bat butter, sugar, brown sugar, peanut butter and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl until creamy.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition

Gradually add flour mixture.  Stir in Chocolate Chips

Cookies bake for 11 to 13 minutes.

Bars 20 to 25 minutes

This time I decided to make bar cookies and you can decide for yourself if they aren't the best looking bar cookies you EVER saw.  Well, that's a wrap for today's cooking 101.
