I got this recipe from Jadi's blog and have made these several times. (It might also be on the back of the Reese's peanut butter chips bag, I can't remember.) These are yummy and a fun variation if you're tired of plain old chocolate chip (though that rarely happens for me). As far as favorite peanut butter and chocolate cookies go, I also LOVE Peanut Butter Cup Cookies and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip.
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup Hershey's cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/4 cups (2-1/2 sticks) butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-2/3 cups (10-oz. pkg.) Reese's peanut butter chips
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; set aside. Beat butter and sugar in 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 teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 9 minutes. Do not overbake--cookies will be soft. They will puff while baking and flatten while cooling. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
