Peanut Butter Chocolate chunk cookie

Serving size: 1 cookie
Points per serving: 2

I made these, but without the chocolate, only because I didn't have any in the house.  They are the same points either way, so do what you want to.  

2 spray(s) cooking spray
1 cup sugar, granulated
1/4 cup regular butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup whole grain wheat flour
1 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips (made with butter)

Preheat oven to 375.  Coat 2 cookie sheets with cooking spray or cover with parchment paper.  Place sugar, butter and peanut butter in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.  Add eggs and vanilla; blend well with mixer.  Add salt, baking soda and flour to sugar mixture; beat until completely incorporated.  Drop batter by heaping teaspoons onto prepared cookie sheets and flatten with the back of a wooden spoon.  Make sure to leave about 2 inches between each cookie. (Bake in several batches to prevent over-crowding if necessary.)  Place a chocolate chip in center of each cookie.   Bake cookies until edges brown, about 10 to 11 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheet for 1 or 2 minutes; remove cookies to a wire rack and cool completely.  Yields 1 cookie per serving.
