Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Okay, so what’s not to love about a cookie made with peanut butter, brown sugar and chocolate chips? I wanted to make a treat for our friends who were watching our kids while my husband and I went on a date. I know chocolate & peanut butter would make my girlfriend very happy so I decided to make cookies. They turned out better than I imagined. They were crisp on the outside and soft & gooey on the inside. I really loved the balance of salty & sweet. Try dipping them in ice cold milk… heaven.

  • 1/2 cup of butter (1 stick), softened
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of white sugar
  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter (I used creamy)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cup of flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. In a large mixer, cream butter, peanut putter, sugars and vanilla. Add the egg and mix until light & fluffy. In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt – mix thoroughly. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the butter mixture, stirring continuously. Add chocolate chips and combine. Drop spoonfuls of cookie dough on the baking sheet and press the center of the cookie with a fork. Bake for 10-11 minutes. Enjoy!

    Okay, I just finished cleaning up from a (double) batch of these. Please note: if you are home alone, don’t make these until properly supervised, they are far too addicting! Fabulous recipe, thank you, I will need to pass this one along.
