Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Peanut Chip Cookies

A favorite cookie as a child and now Adult. One can never get sick of a classic for the cookie jar!
2- 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter any brand
1/2 cup chopped peanuts
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups milk chocolate chips

Just a note, everytime I make these they always take a different thickness and shape depending on if your dropping them from a spoon or if you flatten with a glass after rolling into a ball and then into some sugar.  Anything to make these as easy as possible,
a full proof recipe in flavor everytime no matter how you shape them!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl blend together flour baking soda and salt. Beat in another larger bowl with an electric mixer, the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Mix in the peanut butter, egg, vanilla till smooth. Add the flour mixing well. Fold in the nuts and chips.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls as pictured or you can also drop with a spoon or roll these into balls then into some granulated sugar then place on baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches between them to allow for spread.
Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned if you want a chewy cookie (slightly longer baking will result in crispier cookies). Cool cookies before removing from parchment paper.
