Chunky Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


Chunky Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

(adapted from this recipe)

Yummy, gooey peanut butter cookies with bits of crunchy peanuts and chunks of chocolate.

1/2 cup (1 stick butter), room temperature

1/2 cup brown suger

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup CRUNCHY peanut butter

1 egg

3/4  tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp  baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 1/4 cups flour

1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat over to 375.

Add butter, brown sugar and white sugar into a bowl and beat until mixture is creamy (about 2-3 minutes). Mix in peanut butter, egg, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Beat until all ingredients are well mixed (another 2-3 minutes).  Mix in the flour a little at a time as the dough will be very sticky and thick. When all of the flour is integrated, stir in the chocolate chips.

Spoon small round dough balls on to a cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. With a fork slightly flatten the cookie with a criss cross pattern. Cook for about 15 minutes (or until cookies are a light golden brown.) Yields 24-30 cookies depending on how big you make your balls. (I yielded 30.)
