Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these over the weekend and everyone asked if I would post the recipe.  They are quite delicious. 

2 sticks unsalted butter at room temperature

1 cup light brown sugar

3/4 white sugar

1 tsp. kosher salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1 jar of extra crunchy peanut butter ( the extra crunchy party might be the key )

2 large eggs

3 cups flour

24 ounce bag of sem-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350.  Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. 

Using a mix master and the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugars until creamy.  Add salt and baking soda, mix again.  Add the eggs, mix again.  Add the peanut butter and mix thoroughly.  Add the flour, one cup at a time and mixing in between.  Add the chocolate chips and mix again until everything is really incorporated.

Using your hands, make about 12 balls per cookie sheet.  Press them down with a fork.  Put in the oven for about 12 minutes or until browned.

    Do you add the peanut butter with the unsalted butter and sugars or later? 

    1. Gotham Gal

    Yum!   I used to eat peanut butter chip cookies all the time when I was in college (which probably explains why I’m thinner now).  Will be making them today.  Curious why there is no vanilla so may experiment with half with and half without.

      no vanilla, but it works.

    Just to be sure: Temperatue celcius or fahrenheit?Is baking soda, baking powder or bicarbonated soda. Sorry for silly questions. My brother in law has insisted I make this for him. 🙂 I am not a good cook!

    1. Gotham Gal

      no worries. yes baking soda not powder. temperature in the ovens are farenheit.
