What's Baking: Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Another request from D -- peanut butter chip cookies. I used Reese's peanut butter chips in this recipe -- they are kind of way-too-delicious. (The taste like super-miniature peanut butter cups -- yum!) This is basically the same recipe as my chocolate chip cookies, with the peanut butter chips replacing the chocolate chips. Somehow, though, these cookies are even more delish than the chocolate chip version. Long story short, I can't be trusted with them around the house, so it's good that D took a whole bag of them on a recent work trip!
