Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I had no business baking anything today! My day was very busy, the girls had runny noses, the house is getting on top of me and H, well I have not seen him in ages he has been so busy at work. But, being very honest, I had to bake because I needed something to put on my new cake stand. ;) Having no time to run to the store I worked with what I had on hand. This is a very sweet, very peanut buttery, moist cookie. This recipe will yield 3 dozen. I have made 24 and put 12 (unbaked) in the freezer for when I have unexpected guests. I feel like I am always baking but I never seem to have anything around for guests! 


2 sticks of butter (about 225 grams)
1 cup (8oz) of light brown sugar ( I use muscovado) 
1 cup (8oz) of granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 to 5 ounces of milk chocolate chip cookies
pinch of salt

1. Preheat oven to 350F/175C/155C with fan.  
2. Mix flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl and set aside. 
3. In a separate bowl mix together the butter, sugars and peanut butter until very smooth. Add eggs. Mix. 
4. Slowly add flour mixture until smooth. Add vanilla extract. Mix. 
5. Spoon onto lined cookie sheets. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes. They should be a golden brown color.
