Peanut Butter & White Chip Chocolate Cookies

Here is another recipe we all loved from Our Best Bites.  They were easy and fun to make; I made these with my 4-year old while everyone else was gone.  They were yummy too, and very popular with the kids; they were gone in no time.  The recipe calls for part butter-flavored shortening, but I just used plain, organic shortening for no trans-fats.  If I didn't have the organic shortening on hand, I would have used all butter.
Peanut Butter & White Chip Chocolate Cookies
from Our Best Bites

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening (I used organic... no trans-fats)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour (can use some whole wheat pastry)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup peanut butter chips
1 cup white chocolate chips

1.  Preheat oven to 350 F.

2.  Cream together butter, shortening, brown sugar, and granulated sugar.  Add the vanilla, and then the eggs, one at a time. 

3.  In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, bakind powder, salt, and cocoa powder.  Add flour mixture to the butter mixture to combine and then mix in the chips. 

4.  Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, drop onto an ungreased or parchment-lined cookie sheet.  Bake for about 8-10 minutes.  Allow to cool for about 5 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
