Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

About two weeks ago Matt and I started talking about cookies and I though "Why do you never see Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chips in them!?". Sure enough, soon as I said that, I saw two different varieties at different grocery stores and had to try them.  Sadly, they were super dry and crumbly, not the chewy moist cookie of our desires.  That was the start of our quest to make delicious peanut butter chocolate chip cookies.

Luckily, I think we got it down pretty good in one try.  Matt and I just made this - they are delicious!  We even made one without the chocolate chips for Luke and he approves of them as well.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 c butter, room temperature
1 c chunky peanut butter
3/4 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1 Tbsp milk (we used soy)
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 c flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350

Mix together the butter and peanut butter until smooth, then stir in both sugars.  Add the egg, milk and vanilla and stir until smooth.  Stir in the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt until it's all combined.  Dump in some chocolate chips and mix those in as well.  Form into little balls, place them on a cookie sheet and use a fork to criss-cross the top.  

Bake 10-11 minutes, or until bottoms are turning golden brown.  
We like our cookies chew, but if you want them crunchy just cook them a little longer.

Matt also made a big freeform cookie that I think looks like a crumpet:
