Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Really, who is tired of my baking yet? Luckily, the people in my life are enjoying the fruits of this labor! For this week's link up with AP at I Love You More Than Carrots, I baked specifically with my father-in-law in mind. We had dinner with my in-laws on Saturday and I wanted to bring him something sweet. He has a big sweet tooth! 
Like his son, he is a fan of chocolate and peanut butter. I made these cookies back in September. I wanted to use the Reese's Peanut Butter Chips that I had in the pantry. After a bit of Pinterest browsing, I found the following:

Unlike past baking projects, I made several modifications to this recipe, including adjusted baking time, ingredient additions and changes. Here is my adaptation:

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
Adapted from KA Flour
Yield 2.5 dozen cookies

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon of brewed coffee, cooled
1 2/3 (1 bag) cups Reese's Peanut Butter Chips

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.

In another bowl, beat together the sugars, butter, and peanut butter until light and fluffy. Beat in the vanilla, egg, coffee, and water, then stir in the dry ingredients, blending well. Stir in the peanut butter chips

Using a cookie scoop, scoop dough onto the prepared baking sheets.

Bake the cookies for 10 minutes, or until they're set and you can smell the chocolate. Remove them from the oven, and cool on a rack.

These cookies turned out so yummy. So pour yourself a glass of milk (or Lactaid in my case) and enjoy!
