MARYLAND- Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

A new addition to Our Cookie Nation Series, this cookie was chosen by the state of Maryland as their favorite holiday cookie.
A great treat, it's a delicious cookie that is chewy and easy to make.  I love easy to make.
Although I'm not a big fan of peanut butter cookies, this is one I give a high rating. Give it a try!

1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
2 eggs
2 Tbsp. light corn syrup
2 Tbsp. water
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt
2 c. semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, peanut butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then add the corn syrup, water, and vanilla.
In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt.
Combine the flour mix and the peanut butter mix together.  Fold in chocolate chips.
Drop about 1/4 c. dough mix 3 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until edges are lightly golden.  Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 1-2 minutes, then remove to wire racks to cool completely.
