      1/2  cup           butter or margarine -- softened
      1/2  cup           creamy peanut butter
      1/2  cup           granulated sugar
      1/2  cup           packed light brown sugar
    2                    eggs
    1      teaspoon      vanilla
    1 1/3  cups          all-purpose flour
    1      teaspoon      baking soda
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
    1 3/4  cups          semisweet chocolate chips
 Preheat oven to 350-degrees F. 
 Combine the softened butter or margarine and the peanut butter in a large
 bowl.  Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until the mixture is
 light and fluffy. 
 Gradually add the granulated sugar and brown sugar.  Beat in the eggs and
 vanilla until well combined; set aside.
 In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda and salt.  Add the
 flour mixture and chocolate pieces to the dough.  Stir until the dough is
 well blended.  
 Drop the batter by tablespoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheets.
 Bake for 9 to 12 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are lightly
 browned or a slight impression remains when the cookies are lightly touched
 with a fingertip.
 Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
