1 stick plus 6 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar1 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips, chopped
parchment paper

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. In a freestanding electric mixer with a paddle attachment or a handheld electric whisk, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well and scraping down the sides of the bowl after each addition. Turn the mixer to slow and beat in the vanilla and peanut butter. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt; mix well until a smooth dough is formed. Stir in the chocolate chips until evenly dispersed. Drop 12 equal amounts of cookie dough on each prepared baking sheet and bake 10 minutes or until golden brown around the edges. Let cookies cool slightly on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
