Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these cookies for a client appreciation party and goodbye party for my boss at work.  We catered food from Corner Bakery and I made the desserts.  These cookies went faster then the sandwiches!  Everybody loved them.  They don't taste super peanut buttery, but they are delicious.


Peanut Butter Chocolate Chips Cookies - adapted from How Sweet Eats
Yield: makes about 18 cookies
Ingredients:
2 Cups Flour
1/2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
8 Tablespoons of Unsalted Butter, melted and cooled
6 Tablespoons of Creamy Peanut Butter, melted and cooled
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Egg + 1 Egg Yolk, at room temperature
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
1 1/2 Cups Chocolate Chips

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. 
  2. Add butter and peanut butter to a microwave safe bowl, and heat in 30 second increments until melted. Let cool completely.
  3. Mix the flour and baking soda in a bowl and set aside. 
  4. In another bowl, mix the cooled butter/peanut butter and sugars until they are combined. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and stir until mixed. 
  5. Gradually add flour and mix until a dough forms – it will look crumbly at first, but it will come together.  Fold in chocolate chips.
  6. Scoop the dough with a cookie scoop or tablespoon measurement. Place on a baking sheet two inches apart and bake for 12-14 minutes or until the edges are slightly brown. The centers should be soft and puffy. Do not over bake. Let cool completely.
  7. Enjoy!!
