Total time: 
Serves: 16
  • ½ cup butter or margarine
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1¼ cups flour
  • ¾ tsp soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. With electric mixer, cream butter, peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla until very smooth and creamy.
  3. Stir together dry ingredients, then mix them into the creamed mixture.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Spread evenly in lightly greased 8x8" or 9x9" pan and bake for 20-25 minutes, until edges are golden. (The center may still look slightly "jiggly" - it will set and settle as it cools, and these are better slightly underdone, as they will dry out quickly otherwise.)
To make cookies AND squares: Preheat oven to 375. Prepare batter as directed, DOUBLING all ingredients. Spread half the batter in a lightly greased 8x8" or 9x9" baking dish and set aside while you make the cookies. For cookies, spoon rounded teaspoons of batter onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 375º for 9-11 minutes, until edges are just golden. Cool slightly before removing to rack to cool completely. (Makes about 3 dozen cookies). When cookies are done, reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake squares as directed.
