Chocolate & Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

I recently picked up a bag of Nestle’s peanut butter & chocolate chips. If you haven’t seen or tried them yet, run to your Target or Harris Teeter or where ever you shop. I wanted to make cookies for my work trip & these we’re perfect. I found the recipe off the back of the bag {thanks Nestle!}. Orginal & creative? No. Made with basic, already-in-my-pantry-ingredients & Delicious? Hells yeah.

Ingredients

2 & 1/4 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 c butter, softened
3/4 c sugar
3/4 c brown sugar, packed {I used light}
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 pkg Nestle Tollhouse peanut butter & chocolate “morsels”
1 c chopped nuts {omitted}

Directions
Mix flour, soda & salt in small bowl & set aside.

In large mixer, cream together butter & sugar then vanilla. Add eggs one at a time being sure to beat them in well.

Gradually add in the flour. {Don’t do what I did and think there wasn’t any left, slap the bowl & send flour flying.} Stir in chips.

Using soup/tablespoon, drop cookie balls onto cookie sheets. I used non-stick or parchment covered ones.
Bake 9-11 minutes at 375. Let cool for a few minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

Official recipe says makes 5 dozen cookies. Mine must have been really big because I made more like 3 dozen amazingly yummy cookies. They might’ve been the perfect late night snack & breakfast three days this week. They might’ve.

    No shame in simple & basic! My favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe is the one on the back of the Nestle chocolate chips, just subbing half the butter for shortening, so they don't spread so much. I bet those were delicious with peanut butter chips too!

    Those look delicious! Too bad I gave up chocolate for Lent. But they will be on my list to bake!
