      Peanut Butter Chocolate Chippers:

      Empty cookie mix into a large mixing bowl and stir to combine. Add 1/2 cup softened butter or margarine, 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter, 1 beaten egg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Mix until completely blended. Shape dough into balls and place 2 inches apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 to 13 minutes or until edges are slightly brown.
