Traditional Mayoff Day Chocolate Peanutbutter Chip Cookies

by Denise Mayoff

May actually be eaten at any time of the year, but if you only cook for
special occasions, this is the appropriate time!

1 1/2 cups butter or margarine, softened
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 2/3 cups (10 oz pkg) Reese's Peanut Butter Chips

Heat oven to 350 F. In large mixer bowl, beat butter and sugar until
light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Stir together
flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; gradually blend into butter
mixture. Stir in chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased
cookie sheet. Bake 8-9 minutes (do not overbake; cookies will be soft.
they will puff while baking and flatten while cooling). Cool slightly
(one minute); remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
Makes about 4 1/2 dozen large cookies, or about 9 dozen average-sized
ones. I make the small ones because they stay softer longer.
