I have cooked up a storm over the past few days! I've been eyeing the bag of peanut butter chips in my pantry for a while now and decided this could be the perfect recipe for today, after all this recipe got 5 stars on allrecipes and my oven was still hot after baking these. They cooked up beautifully and who can resist chocolate and peanut butter?!
chocolate peanut butter chip cookies (allrecipes.com)
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup Hershey's unsweetened cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 (12 ounce) package Hershey's peanut butter chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat butter, shortening, white sugar and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat the first egg into the butter until completely blended then beat in the vanilla with the second egg. Mix flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and salt in another bowl; mix the flour mixture into the butter mixture until just incorporated. Fold in peanut butter chips, mixing just enough to evenly combine.
Drop spoonfuls of the dough 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake in preheated oven until cookies are set, about 8 minutes.
