Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Who says that chocolate chip cookies need to be made with semi-sweet chocolate? These yummy little treats remind me of a Reese’s peanut butter cup with the creamy milk chocolate chips and peanut butter.

Dagmar discovered this recipe and baked them for an upcoming family reunion.

I’m just afraid they won’t make it that long…

Her siblings are inhaling them pretty fast!

Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup softened butter or margarine
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 package milk chocolate chips

Cream together butter (margarine) and peanut butter. Slowly add in both the white sugar and the brown sugar. Mix well.

Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until the dough is light and fluffy.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

Drop by rounded teaspoons on a greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Let the cookies cool slightly on the cookie sheet before removing them to finish cooling on a wire rack.

Makes 3 dozen cookies (unless you eat too much dough!)
