These cookies are the absolute BEST peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies. Ever.
No, really. They are. A long time ago I was a member of this one recipe site…which I was later banned from. You know, for being a smart ass. What kind of freak gets banned from a recipe site, you ask? You’re lookin’ at her. haha Anyway, this recipe comes from someone I used to know at said site, and her name is P4. Apart from some of the best friends I have ever had the pleasure of knowing (Hi Brats! ), this is one of the only things that I have still hung onto from there.
These cookies are melt in your mouth, crispy on the outside, chewy on the sinside–er inside, you know what I mean. lol
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
a pinch of salt
1 cup chocolate chips
First of all? I recommend doubling the recipe.
You won’t regret it, though your butt might. lol
Preheat oven to 375ºF (175ºC).
Line a cookie sheet or two with parchment.
Cream butter and sugars until creamy, then add egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.
Add Peanut butter and continue to beat until combined.
Add flour, baking powder and salt and stir to combine.
Add chips and stir again.
Drop small spoonfuls of dough onto parchment (you should get a dozen per sheet).
Bake 12 minutes or until just golden.
Remove from oven and allow to rest on the sheet 1 minute before removing with a spatula.
Serve with gallons and gallons of milk.
If you have kids, hide a stash for yourself, because these only lasted 2 days in my house. And I doubled the recipe. I had 3 cookies out of about 6 dozen that were baked.
