Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
YIELD 35 cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 and 1/4 cups (315 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (225 g/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 and 1/2 cups (375 g) creamy peanut butter (not natural)
  • 3/4 cup (150 g) light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup (150 g) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 and 3/4 cups (300 g) chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a mixer bowl fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and peanut butter on medium speed for 1 minute until creamy. Add brown sugar and granulated sugar and beat on medium speed for about 3 minutes, until fluffy. Beat in the egg, one at a time, then beat in vanilla extract. Add flour mixture and mix just until combined. Do not overmix. Add chocolate chips. The dough will be soft at this point. Chill it for about 1 hour until it's easy to handle.

  3. Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C degrees. Line 2-3 pans with parchment paper.
  4. Roll dough into balls, the size of 2 tablespoons each (mine were about 40 grams each), and place onto the cookie sheets. Bake for about 10 minutes, until cookies just begin to brown at the edges, but the center is still soft. Cookies will appear undone, that's ok. If the cookies are puffy, gently press them down while still warm using a spatula or the back of a spoon but leave them thick. Allow cookies to cool for 10-15 in the cookie sheet until they are easy to transfer without breaking, then gently transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Serve cookies warm or at room temperature.

  5. Store cookies at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 3 days. If you plan to keep them for longer, place in the fridge for up to 1 week, or freeze for up to 2 months.
