Baking cookies to warm up your kitchen ~

Today I thought I'd do what I call " Peanut Butter Choceze". This is a nice hearty cookie for a cold winter day. Good with a cup of coffee ~ hot tea ~ hot chocolate or a glass of milk.
Always remember to preheat the oven. Today at 375 degrees. Also take out your butter about an hour before you start your mixing. I like to use a big mixing bowl when everything is all put together. It saves on flour spilling over the edge.
It a small bowl sift together:
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
Set this aside for later.
In the large bowl get your fork and start mashing together
1 cup of butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar (push down on the sugar so it is tight and full)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Make sure it is mashed and mixed well and add
1 egg get the egg mashed in well.
Now, slowly add the small bowl of the flour mixture to the large mixing bowl with the butter mixture. When this is mixed well add:
1 cup Peanut butter chips (6 oz)
1 cup chocolate chips (6 oz)
Don't mix with your bare hands. Use a very large serving spoon.
No need to grease up the baking sheet. I use the "Teflon" coated type baking pans.
Use two teaspoons for dealing them out on the cookie sheet. Drop them not too close together. They need a little space to flatten out as they bake.
Bake at 375 for 7 to 10 minutes. Put the oven light on to check on them. Opening the oven will allow heat to escape. So look through the window and see if they are baked to a tanish color. This should make about 6 dozen yummy cookies.
