Cookie of the Week.......Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

So, I'm going to start something new, I'm gonna TRY and post a new cookie recipe every week.  My kids love cookies, I don't usually buy store-bought, it's so easy to make homemade, and it's so much cheaper! These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies are so delicious, and we love them.  I started making them a while back when Becca was about 3 years old. They are a Martha Stewart recipe, she made them on her t.v. show back in 2000!!!!  Wow, that was a long time ago, and I've been making them ever since. 
I use my Kitchen Aid Mixer when making a batch of cookies, it's so easy, and saves so much time! This original recipe only made about 2 dozen cookies, so I double the recipe below, they are so good, one recipe is never enough. Try these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies, you will love them! 

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

2 sticks of butter
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
One WHOLE BAG of Semisweet Chocolate Chunk pieces

Preheat oven to 350. Mix with an electric mixer the butter, peanut butter, and egg until creamy, add the sugar's and mix until very creamy.  In a bowl combine all the dry ingredients, and whisk to combine.  Add to the butter mixture and mix really good, add the vanilla, and chocolate chunks.  Grease your cookie trays and using 2 teaspoon's or a small ice cream scoop, put the dough on the cookie trays and bake in the oven for 18 -20 mins until golden brown.  Cool.......EAT......YUMMO!!!!!
