Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Welcome to Becca’s Baking Blog. 
 (At least, that what I feel like my blog has been about lately.)
I have to say, chocolate chip cookies are my go-to cookie.  If we need a sweet treat, and I don’t want to look up a recipe, I go for chocolate chip.  For me, it’s quick and easy and the recipe is in my head.  Sometimes, we’re looking to shake things up a bit.  If we’re feeling wild and crazy, the peanut butter chocolate chip cookies will make an appearance. 
Here’s the recipe:
1/2 cup margarine, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups chocolate chips
Heat oven to 375.  In a large bowl, beat margarine, shortening, peanut butter, and both sugars.  Add eggs. Add dry ingredients to the butter mixture, beating until well blended.  Add chocolate chips. Bake 8-10 minutes.
Just a little side note, this time I used Bob’s Red Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour.  The cookies were a little more dense and look slightly darker, but by using whole wheat flour, they are practically healthy.  At least that’s what I’m telling myself.
Happy baking!

Here are a few linky parties I like to participate in.
