Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

Normally a recipe I reserve for Passover, these cookies are just too good not to eat all year round. Because of the lack of flour in the cookies and the amount of fat in the peanut butter, these cookies are a bit hard to handle, and require a bit more work than drop cookies. They are still extremely quick and easy to make and are always a favorite cookie to have on hand.

1 egg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup chunky peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Beat the egg in a medium bowl, and then add the baking soda and vanilla. Mix briefly, then add the peanut butter, sugar, and chocolate chips. Mix well. Form the cookies by rolling about a tablespoon of dough in your hands. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake for about 8 minutes, or until they start to lightly brown on the edges. Cookies should be puffed up and quite soft in the center. Remove from the oven and cool on the sheets for 10 minutes. Remove and let finish cooling on wire racks.

Makes 2 dozen cookies.
