31 days of warming up to the holidays: {day 18}: Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

I am going to share one of my FAVORITE cookie recipes with you.  It's a great recipe to take to cookie exchanges or holiday parties. Just be sure you have a copy of the recipe handy because people will ask for it!

Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
Makes 3 dozen

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Beat butter until creamy.  Gradually add sugars, beating well. Add egg and beat until just blended.

Combine flour and next 3 ingredients (cocoa, baking soda, salt).  Gradually add to butter mixture, beating at a low speed until blended. Add peanut butter and vanilla extract, beating until blended.  Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls (I use a cookie scoop - it makes this step SO much easier), 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake at 375 degrees for 7 minutes - do not overbake!  They will still look soft but take them out at 7 minutes, I promise.  Remove to wire racks and let cool for 15 minutes.
