Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

The first time I made these cookies, they were gone within the same evening.  I was more than happy to help, of course.  The next night I doubled the recipe and made more.  Needless to say, they were a hit.  These cookies are soft as opposed to a crisp cookie and have a light texture to them.  I bet you can't eat just one.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup miniature chocolate chip

In a mixing bowl, cream butter, peanut butter, and sugars together using a hand mixer.  Add baking powder and baking soda and beat together.  Blend in egg and vanilla.  Add flour and beat well.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Scoop out dough using a cookie scoop and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake at 375 degrees for 7-10 minutes.  Cool on a wire rack.  Store in an airtight container.
