Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I decided to make these for Madison's teachers for a first day of school treat. Who doesn't love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate?



1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 T light corn syrup
2 T water
2 t vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the corn syrup, water, and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the peanut butter mixture. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop by spoonful onto ungreased baking sheets. These cookies do not spread out so you can get alot on a single cookie sheet- put them very close together. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until edges are golden. Allow cookies to cool for 1 minute on the cookie sheet before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

TIP OF THE DAY: If your brown sugar has gotten hard while sitting in your pantry, put it in your microwave for about 30 seconds and it will loosen right up!
