peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

This is a great peanut butter cookie recipe from good housekeeping cookbook that i jazzed up a bit by adding some chocolate chips, and some other various adjustments. These would be a great treat to take along to any parties for memorial day weekend. There simple, but definitely a crowd pleaser.

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2/3 cup honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter; softened
2 eggs
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup chocolate chips (more of less depending on how much you like chocolate)

1. Preheat oven to 350F, Then cream together the butter and sugar, add peanut butter, eggs, honey, and vanilla mix until combined. (make sure to scrape the bowl with a spatula, to ensure incorporation of all ingredients) Then add in the flour and baking powder, mixing until just combined. Then mix in chocolate chips.
2. Shape cookies into 1-inch balls and place 3-inches apart on cookie sheet (i like to line mine with parchment paper, that way the cookies just slide off, and clean-ups a breeze).
3. Flatten each cookie a bit with hand (or the back of a measuring cup works good; just have a little flour on it though if it begins to stick).
4. Bake 10 minutes (or until edges are lightly browned); rotating halfway through.

Heres the cookie balls before i flattened them (i forgot to take a pic after i flattened them)

And here they are after being baked

And just before there about to be devoured.....

......enjoy :))
