  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine, peanut butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each. Combine the flour and baking soda; stir into the peanut butter mixture. Mix in chocolate chips. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned at the edges. Allow cookies to cool on the cookie sheets for a minute before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

Awesome recipe! I added Reeses chips instead of choc chips and they turned out fabulous. Definately a keeper.

These did not seem like they would be very spectacular because of their simplicity. But they were!! Very rich and chewy, but for those who thought they did not have much flavor, my suggestion wo...

These cookies are great! They blend nicely the taste of peanut butter and chocolate. These are definite winner!

I love Aunt Cora! These are great cookies. Not only delicious but beautiful, too. To the rater that ended up with the too flat cookies: your eggs are probably too big. Older recipes often u...

Continuing the peanut butter theme, I used Nestle peanut butter and chocolate morsels. I substituted half butter, half shortening for the margarine and added a teaspoon of vanilla. I baked them...
