These simple stir-together cookies are made in a flash and are great for any occasion. Since Thursday, May 15 is National Chocolate Chip Cookie day we thought we’d add our own little peanut butter touch to celebrate the holiday.
In this recipe we pay homage to the chocolate chip cookie by adding creamy peanut butter deliciousness to the dough to make an American favorite even tastier!
Make the cookies and celebrate the holiday this Thursday!
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total time: 50 minutes
Yield: 12 cookies
1¼ cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
¾ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup Smooth Operator peanut butter
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 (12-ounce bag) semisweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350° F. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt to combine; set aside.
2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine butter, peanut butter, and sugars. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg and mix until incorporated, then milk and extract. With mixer on low speed, gradually add flour mixture just until combined.
3. Using a cookie scoop or 1/4 cup dry measuring cup, portion dough and transfer to parchment-lined baking sheets (about 4 per sheet). Bake until cookies are fragrant and beginning to brown on the edges, about 16 minutes. Let cookies cool 5 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
