Ingredients:
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups flour--I use about 2 1/2 to 3 cups to make a nice thick dough. It creates a decadent, puffed cookie.
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

Optional madness:
12 oz. bag of good milk chocolate
1 cup of salted peanuts

Directions:
Combine your butter and sugars until fluffy. Add peanut butter and vanilla and mix. Add eggs one at a time until incorporated. Add dry ingredients and mix. Stir in your chocolate and peanuts.

I like my cookies big and so I use an ice cream scoop and place 6 evenly on the cookie sheet. I don't press down on them like traditional peanut butter cookies, but do sprinkle with sugar before baking. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes until lightly browned.

Yum!
