Almost Like Granny's Chocolate & Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Sometimes naming a recipe is challenging. Especially with cookies. What makes the recipe different, or stand out from another one? Well, the day one of Truckin' Mans friends was enjoying some of these tasty cookies and proclaimed "These are almost like my grandma's cookies", I knew that was what I would call them.

I've made this recipe so many times now, and it is always a hit. The cookies turn out perfectly every time. The only draw back to this recipe is that you do need to chill the dough. Now, I am not saying that I have always followed the rules, but the rules are worth following. Your patience in waiting is greatly rewarded.

This isn't a new recipe, it's from an old cookbook that was handed down to Grace at A Southern Grace, and being the lovely southern Carolina girl that she is and sharing, we are all able to enjoy this lovely cookie. The only change I have made from her recipe, is that I add some peanut butter chips to mine.

Almost Like Granny's Chocolate & Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

2/3 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter chips

In large mixing bowl, beat together butter and shortening. Add sugars, and cream together. Add eggs, and vanilla, beating until fluffy (about 4-5 minutes). In medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add flour to butter mixture, mixing well. Add chocolate and peanut butter chips, mixing until evenly distributed.

Cover dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight (or at least four hours).

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Using medium cookie dough scoop, drop dough onto baking sheets, 2 to 3 inches apart.  Bake for 9-11 minutes, just until edges are starting to turn golden. Cool for 2-3 minutes on baking sheet, then transfer to cooling rack.
