Peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips

It has been too damn long since I've made cookies. Sure, I've had cookies [I mean, come on], but store bought are just never the same.

Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chips- you just can't beat a classic.

3/4 c. peanut butter (this time we had crunchy)
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 c. GF Flour mix (1/3 c. each brown rice flour, sorghum flour, potato starch, pinch of xanthan gum)
1/4t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
enough chocolate chips to make your heart sing

Cream the peanut butter & sugar, add the eggs and beat in. Stir in the flour, leaveners, and salt. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop onto cookie sheet and sprinkle with sugar. The world won't cringe if you don't use that raw, chunky stuff. Regular old sugar is fine.

:: Now. A bit about fork marks. I'm a peanut butter cookie traditionalist. If there are no fork marks, I immediately consider the cookie sub-par. However, fork marks and chocolate chips don't mesh. So it's forgivable, just this time.

Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, until the bottoms start to brown around the edges and the centers are set. Let cool before enjoying.
