Peanut Butter Chip Chocolate Cookies

This recipe calls for peanut butter chips but I prefer to use President Choice mini peanut butter melts.  This recipe is from The Winnipeg Free Press Recipe Swap Favorites by Ilana Simon.

1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups unsifted all-purpose flour
2/3 cups cocoa
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups peanut butter chips

Cream butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy.  Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture.  Stir in peanut butter chips.  Chill until firm enough to handle.

Shape small amounts of dough into 1-inch balls.  Place on ungreased baking sheet and flatten slightly with fork.  Bake at 350F for 8 to 10 minutes.  Cool 1 minute before removing from cookie sheet onto wire rack.

Makes about 6 dozen, 2 1/2 inch cookies.
