Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Although I don't like peanut butter on it's own, I love to use it in baking. I also love chocolate chip cookies. A hybrid is born with this recipe: one of the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever had, enhanced by a hint of peanut butter. Even if you can't stand peanut butter, chances are you'll love this recipe, just like me.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
(Recipe from Brown Eyed Baker

Makes about 16 cookies
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 stick (½ cup) unsalted butter, at room temperature
½ cup creamy peanut butter
½ cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
½ cup rolled oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
2. Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
3. On medium speed, cream together the butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and beat to combine. On low speed, gradually add the flour until just combined. Stir in the oats, and then the chocolate chips.
4. Use a large cookie scoop (3 tablespoons) and drop dough onto prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly golden. Cool completely on the baking sheet and then store in an airtight container at room temperature.
