These cookies are delicious- crispy on the outside, soft and chewy in the middle. They make big sized cookies, but well worth it! -Susan
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped semisweet chocolate
Preheat overn 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 stir in the corn syrup, water, vanilla extract.
In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into peanut butter mixture.

Drop by 1/4 cupfuls 3 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
