Recipe: Triple Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

I got an email from The Hubby today that said "Best Day EVER!" with a link to a story declaring that today was National Peanut Butter Day.  I know that peanut and other nut allergies abound, so these will not be going to school with the kiddos (even though their schools are not peanut free, I choose not to send nut items to school as a general rule...) but they are delicious in our allergy-free home.

Triple Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 c butter, softened
1 c smooth peanut butter at room temperature
3/4 c sugar
1/2 c firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 egg
1 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

1 1/4 c flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 c coarsely chopped peanuts
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 c semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 c dark chocolate chips (or milk chocolate chips, if you can't find dark)

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Beat together the peanut butter and butter until fluffy.  Cream in the sugar.  Stir in the egg, milk, and vanilla.  Slowly add the flour and the baking soda.  Fold in the peanuts and chocolate chips.
Mmmm, chunks!
Scoop onto parchment lined baking sheets with a small cookie scoop, about an inch apart.  Press each cookie with a fork to flatten (and leave that tell-tale peanut butter cookie design).  Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Let cool 1-2 minutes on the cookie sheet and then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.  Enjoy (preferably with a tall glass of milk!)
