Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

I really enjoy making this recipe...the combination of peanut butter and chocolate, what more could a girl ask for?

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 cup creamy style peanut butter
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, beat the butter, shortening, peanut butter, brown sugar, 1/2 cup granulated sugar and egg until well combined. In another bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda and baking powder until combined. Slowly stir the flour mixture into the first bowl until all ingredients are combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Shape cookie dough into 1" sized balls and place on a cookie sheet that has been lined with the Tupperware Silicone Nonstick Baking Mat. Use a fork that has been dipped into granulated sugar to flatten the balls in a criss-cross fashion.

Bake for 9-11 minutes or until done. Cool slightly before moving them from the cookie sheet. Store cooled cookies in an airtight cookie canister.
