Okay, so what’s not to love about peanut butter chocolate chip cookies? 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 and they turned out better than I imagined. These tasty cookies were crisp on the outside and soft & gooey on the inside and I really loved the balance of salty & sweet. Try dipping them in ice-cold milk–so good!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies:
- 1/2 cup of butter (1 stick), softened to room temperature
- 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, room temperature
- 1 1/4 cup of flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
How to Make Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a large stand mixer, cream butter, peanut butter, 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.
Place into the oven to bake for 10-11 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!
