Old-Fashioned peanut butter cookies with an added bonus: vanilla milk chips.

Yield: 4 dozen 2 inch cookies


1 1/2 cups unsifted all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chunky peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups Guittard Choc-Au-Lait Vanilla Milk Chips


Preheat oven to 350ºF.

In small bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
In large bowl of electric mixer cream peanut butter, butter, and brown sugar on low to medium speed until light. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture until combined. Stir in Chips.

Drop by well rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten tops of cookies with tines of fork forming criss-cross pattern. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown and slightly soft in the center. Cool on racks; cookies will harden as they cool.
