I simply cannot deny cookie lovers who beg for recipes. It's too cruel. And besides, I know how important a cookie is when you're dealing with things that are occasionally too big for your head to contain.
So here's my Mom's famous, 1970s era peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe:
(seriously, that's what they're called!)
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 6oz package of chocolate chips
Heat over to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat butter and peanut butter until blended. Gradually add both sugars and beat until fluffy.
Add eggs, one at a time, and beat until smooth. Beat flour and baking soda (sifted together) into butter sugar mixtures at low speed. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop batter from tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets, then slightly flatten each with back of spoon.
Bake 12 - 15 minutes.
Makes approximately 4 dozen large cookies.
