Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

This has to be one of my favorite peanut butter cookie recipes. I always add at least half a bag of chocolate chips to the batter before I bake them. These cookies are best left on the pan for at least a couple of minutes after they come out of the oven. They are tender and delicious, so be careful to not overbake them!
