2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

1.     Preheat oven to 350°F.
2.     Generously oil a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
      3.     In a large bowl, combine the butter, peanut butter and sugar. Whisk until well combined. Add the eggs and vanilla and whisk until smooth.
