Thanks so much to Tasha for sharing the recipe with us.

Makes about 36 cookies.

The dough is "crumbly" which scared Tasha (age 11) when she was making it on her own (she worried she'd mis-measured something). It is supposed to be crumbly -- that's what makes them melt in your mouth once they're cooked. Just use your hand to gently mold the dough on the spoon before dropping it on the cookie sheet.

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies
 • 1 3/4 cups of flour
 • 3/4 tsp baking soda
 • 1/4 tsp salt
 • 3/4 cup butter or margarine (at room
 • 1 cup peanut butter
 • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
 • 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
 • 1 egg
 • 1 tsp vanila
 • 1 cup chocolate chips
 1.  Collect all of the ingredients above and
     bring them to your work area along with
     2 bowls for mixing, a measuring cup,
     measuring spoons, a tablespoon, a wooden
     spoon, an electric mixer, a cookie
     sheet, oven mitts and a spatula.
 2.  Heat oven to 375 degrees
 3.  Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl and set aside.
 4.  In a large bowl add butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar.
 5.  Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy.
 6.  Add egg and vanilla and continue beating until it's all combined.
 7.  Add flour mixture to the wet mixture about 1/4 cup at a time. You can use the electric mixer to do this
     until about the last 1/4 cup when you'll have to switch to a wooden spoon.
 8.  Stir in chocolate chips with a wooden spoon.
 9.  Drop by heaping tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets. You can mold lightly onto the spoon with your
     hand before dropping the cookies, but don't play with them too much with your hands or your cookies won't
     be as yummy.
 10. Bake 10 minutes (if you've gotten about 36 cookies out of your dough) to 15 minutes (if you've only
     gotten only 24 cookies out of the dough).
 11. While the cookies are baking, tidy up the work area.
 12. Remove the cookies from the pan with a spatula and place them in a single layer (on a plate or wire rack)
     to cool.
