Peanut Butter Chip and Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are rather crisp but have a chewy center. Although I made them with peanut butter chips and chocolate chips, you could really substitute any chip and/or nut combination you like. I've also made them with white chocolate chips and chopped hazelnuts.

Peanut Butter Chip and Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg yolk
1 egg
1 tablespoon vanilla
2/3 cup chocolate chips
2/3 cup peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Combine the flour, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter.

In a larger mixer bowl, beat the melted butter with the brown sugar and white sugar. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla. Beat again.

Slowly add the flour mixture and mix on low. Then stir in the chocolate chips and peanut butter chips by hand.

Using a small cookie scooper, drop the dough onto the parchment paper. Bake 13-15 minutes. Let cool 2 minutes before removing to cooling rack.

Yields: about 3 dozen cookies.
