The usual peanut butter chocolate chip cookie just doesn't have enough peanut butter flavor for me. I have tweaked this recipe over the years and I think they are perfect this way and have been making them like this for the past 10 years. I hope u enjoy them as much as we do.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
In large mixer bowl cream first 5 ingredients until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in eggs, milk and vanilla.
Sift dry ingredients together. Slowly incorporate into creamed mixture until well blended. Fold in chocolate chips and nuts if desired.
Scoop onto cookie sheets 2" apart. Bake in 350 degree oven for 9-10 minutes or until light brown. Do not overbake to a med or dark brown or they won't be chewy. Let cool 10 minutes on cookie sheet. Finish cooling on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
