Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

These are definitely Phil's favorite cookies that I make. He could eat an entire batch all on his own! Surprisingly very close to the recipe on the back of the bag, just a bit less butter actually makes a better cookie! Who would have thought, right?

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1c butter or margarine, softened
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1-2/3 cups (10-oz. pkg.) REESE'S Peanut Butter Chips

  1. 1. Heat oven to 350°F. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  2. 2. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with mixer until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in peanut butter chips. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. 3. Bake 8 to 9 minutes. (Do not overbake; cookies will be soft. They will puff while baking and flatten while cooling.) Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely (okay, not completely... they're REALLY good warm!)
