Peanut Butter Cookies

I found this recipe on  Jud and I are going to pick-up Bodie and Nick from daycare tomorrow and I am taking these for a snack.  I haven't tasted them yet, but they look delicious.  The only thing I changed is that I added the chocolate chips to the batter instead of making a thumb print in the cookie dough and adding the chocolate chips to the center. This just seemed easier.
peanut butter cookies

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup peanut butter
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a mixer with a paddle attachment, combine the sugars, butter and peanut butter. Beat until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to dough. Dough should be stiff enough to shape with your hands. Make 1-inch balls and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Gently press thumb into the balls to flatten the cookies slightly and make an indentation in the center of the cookie. Press 3-4 chocolate chips into the indentation.  Bake 15-20 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Remove cookies from the oven and transfer to wire racks to cool.
I found that 13 min. was perfect for my oven, so keep a close watch on the first batch to check the time you should cook for your particular oven.
