Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Needing cookies for lunches I scoured the cupboard to see what I had to make. Discovering a bag of Reese's Peanut Butter Chips I adapted the recipe on the back to be GF and made these. They are soft and chewy and a welcome change from our standard chocolate chip cookie.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies
1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups GF flour mix (I used Rebecca Reilly's Brown Rice Mix*)
3/4 cup Hershey's Cocoa
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 2/3 cups (10 oz. pkg.) peanut butter chips

Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl with mixer until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. In a separate bowl whisk together GF flour , cocoa, baking soda, xanthan gum and salt. Gradually add dry mixture to wet, beating well. Stir in peanut butter chips.

Refrigerate one hour.

Heat oven to 350ยบ. Use cookie scoop to drop rounded teaspoons of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 9 minutes. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
