Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Peanut butter and chocolate is such a classic combination, and there are so many directions to go when combining the two. In the past I have done, Peanut Butter Cup CookiesPeanut Chocolate Swirl Bars, and Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter. Today I wanted a softer cookie and something with just a hint of peanut butter flavor. This was just right! 

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add egg. Gradually beat in flour mixture. 
Stir in chips. Drop by well-rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 11 to 13 minutes or until cookies are puffed and centers are set.
Yields 18 cookies.
