double trouble

i love cookies. they are pretty easy 2 make and they bake up really fast. i got a recipe @ least 2o years ago from my friend Robin Nyland. she had gotten it from someone else. it's my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.
i also have a recipe from "parkay margarine" from years ago that i use sometimes for peanut butter,choc chip cookies. im giving you both recipes today. if someone has a tried & true peanut butter cookie recipe,that you could part with,please post it in a comment on this post. that's a cookie that i dont have a regular recipe for.

peanut butter chocolate chip cookies
3/4 cup butter or margarine(1 1/2 sticks)
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 pkg(12oz) chocolate chips
preheat oven 350f
cream butter,sugars & peanut butter.blend in eggs & vanilla.mix in the rest of the dry ingredients. blend well. add chips, stir well. scoop onto cookie sheet.bake 10-12 minutes. cool on rack. i left the chips out of some for a variety.

when i bake cookies i usually make a double batch. sometimes i make them all but most of the time i bake 1 batch & leave the other batch in dough form. i put it in a gallon zip top bag & roll like commercial cookie dough log. i drop in freezer. u can get quite a variety this way & bake a bunch with out having 2 mix it up,but still yummy homemade!
