Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ok So these cookies are AMAZING! I got the recipe from the sisters cafe a bout a week or so ago and I have already made them twice. Yeah not great for the LB's but whatever.

Ultimate Peanut Butter Cookies

1 ¼ cup flour
¾ tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
¼ salt
½ cup butter, softened
1 cup peanut butter
¾ cup sugar
½ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
½ cup peanut butter chips
½ cup chocolate chips
Sugar in a bowl for dipping
Preheat oven 350 degrees
In a large bowl, combine the flour, the baking soda, and the baking powder, and the salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and the peanut butter together until fluffy. Add the sugars and beat until smooth. Add the egg and mix well. Add the milk and the vanilla. Add the flour mixture and beat thoroughly. Stir in the peanut butter chips and chocolate chips. Drop Tbsp size rounded cookie dough into bowl of sugar to coat. Place onungreased cookie sheet leaving several inches between for expansion. Slightly flatten cookies with back of spatula. Bake for 10-12 minutes. The cookies will look underdone. ** I know all ovens are different but I bake mine at 340 for 9-10 minutes. So yummy!!
