I adapted the recipe from the recipe Reese's used to put on their peanut butter chip package, adding some peanut butter and experimenting with a bit with the butter. The original recipe was just for a peanut butter chip cookie, not a peanut butter cookie. The cookies from the recipe below are still not peanut butter cookies with chips added. There is a subtle hint of peanut butter, but the texture resembles a chocolate chip cookie. If you get a chance to try them, let me know how they turn out!
Peanut Buttery Peanut Butter Chip Cookie
1/2 cup light butter, 1/4 cup butter salted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 generous teaspoon vanilla
2 cups unsifted flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup peanut butter (this is an estimate; I took a knife and decided at the last minute to add a couple of scoops)
1 10 oz bag peanut butter chips
Cream butter, sugars, and vanilla until light and fluffy (make sure your butter is softened so you can use a bowl, spoon, and some good old arm strength - don't use a mixer). Add peanut butter. (Since the peanut butter was an afterthought for me, I added them at the very end. I think it would combine easier and more thoroughly if added at this step.)
Add eggs and stir well. Combine flour and baking soda. Add to batter and mix well. Stir in chips. Place by teaspoon fulls onto cookie sheet covered in parchment paper . Bake 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Cook until bottoms begin and edges begin to brown but tops remain soft. Cool completely on wire rack.
