In a delicious twist, this Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie recipecombines two great cookie flavors: chocolate chips and peanut butter.

While most peanut butter cookies are formed into balls and then pressed with fork tines, this cookie recipe is unique in that the batter is soft enough to be prepared as a drop cookie. Even so, this recipe gives you the crisp texture most often connected to peanut butter cookies. (If you prefer super-soft cookies in this flavor combination, try this recipe's twin, Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies. The main differences between the two are the leavening and the oven temperature.)

By the way, this recipe doubles easily! Good to know so you can make extras for the freezer (or for a cookie binge.)

Prep time: about 15 minutes
Bake time: 12-15 minutes
Makes 2-2 ½ dozen cookies
