I didn't have vanilla chips so I used peaunt butter chips instead. I liked them better than when I had used vanilla chips

These are delicious! I modified the recipe slightly. Added two cups of white and one cup of chocolate chips. I did not refrigerate the dough and found that they came out perfect without having to adjust the baking time.
