It is dark now when I leave the house and go to work. Yes, 7:45 a.m. and pitch black dark. This morning I noticed one of my neighbors had his holiday lights up and on. What a wonderful sight on a dark commute to work. I was so thankful, I made some cookies and took some with a thank-you card to his house. I love bright neighbors.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies
from the back of the peanut butter chip bag (I know, really original)
2 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 c. cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/4 c. (2 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
2 c. sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 2/3 cups. (10 oz. pkg.) Reese's Peanut butter chips
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Stir together four, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl with mixer until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in peanut butter chips.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto un-greased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes. Do not over bake, cookies will be soft. They will puff while baking and flatten while cooling. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 4 1/2 dozen cookies.
