Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies with Chocolate Frosting

I (Joni) took a favorite cookie that my family loves and changed a few things to come up with this yummy cookie!!!  These were delicious and everyone who has tried them said best cookies ever!!!  Go make some right now, you wont be disappointed.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies with Chocolate Frosting

1 Cup butter, softened
2 Cups smooth or chunky peanut butter
1 1/2 Cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 Cup granulated sugar
2 Large eggs
1 1/2 Tbsp milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 Cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 Cups milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350
Combined butter, peanut butter and beat until light and fluffy.  I use the kitchen aid.  Add the brown, and white sugars and mix until well combined.  Add the eggs and mix for 1-2 minutes.  Until the mixture is combined.  Add the milk and vanilla, mix.  Add the dry ingredients and mix just briefly.  While there are still large spots of flour, add the chocolate chips and mix until the flour is completely mixed in and all the mixture is well combined.  

When ready to bake, scoop tablespoon sized balls of dough onto a greased cookie sheet.  (I like to scoop about 2 tablespoon sized balls and bake for 14 minutes, but you can do what you like.)  Bake the cookies 10-11 minutes making sure to not over bake.  Take out of oven and leave on cookie sheet for 3-5 minutes to cool.  Then once cooled its time to frost.  I wait about an hour before I do any frosting.
