Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies...yum. I don't bake them too often since Eleanor isn't a huge fan of cookies, and I have to work too hard at the Y to rid myself of the cookie remains on my body. Sometimes a fresh cookie tastes so good though.

This is an adapted recipe from the Ovens of Brittany cookbook in the picture. Obviously, cookies are delicious served with milk...and even more so with our fresh local milk that is delivered to our house every other Tuesday from lw dairy.

Here's the recipe:
4 T butter, softened
4 T margarine, softened
(I used all butter)
3/4 c peanut butter
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1 1 /2 T oil
1 egg
1 1/2 c four
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 c chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter, margarine (if using), peanut butter, and sugars. Stir in oil and egg. Add flour and baking soda and stir until just combined. Add chocolate chips. Roll dough balls in sugar and press each cookie with a fork dipped in sugar.

Bake 12-15 minutes. Cookies are fragile when coming out of the oven; transfer carefully onto cooling racks.
