Adams Family Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups real milk chocolate chips
1 pkg. Reese’s peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Whisk flour, soda and salt.  In a separate bowl, beat sugars, butter, eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy.  Add flour mixture and chips.  Blend on low.  Roll into 1″ balls, flatten slightly with spoon.  Place on lightly greased cookie sheet.  Bake 9-12 minutes.  Let rest on hot pan.

NOTE:  I sometimes substitute cinnamon chips (hard to find, but usually available around Christmas time – I buy and freeze for later in the year) and combine with the chocolate or the peanut butter.  Nice combination.
