Recipe – Best Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am not a cook, but I absolutely LOVE to bake.  Today, I am sharing my favorite recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies.  According to Superman, my very hard-to-please husband (at least when it comes to food), claims these are the BEST EVER cookies.  

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (double batch* – makes about 4 dozen 2-inch cookies)
1 1/2 cup crunch peanut butter
1 cup vegetable shortening
2 1/2 cups brown sugar (packed)
6 Tablespoons milk (we use whole, but any milk is fine)
2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
(1) 16oz bag of mini chocolate chips
Set oven to 375 degrees.  Combine peanut butter, shortening, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla in a large bowl.  Add eggs, one at a time until blended well.  
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.  Add flour mixture to peanut butter mixture a little at a time until gone.  Mix until flour is blended.  Stir in chocolate chips.  
Drop by rounded teaspoons onto baking sheet and bake for 9-10 minutes.
*Double batch too much?  Halve the recipe or follow these directions to freeze your dough.
