Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Butter (softened)
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 large Egg Yolk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 3/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons Crunchy or Creamy Peanut Butter (with sugar such as Jif or Skippy)
  • 1 1/3 cups Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Chocolate Chips or Chunks (milk chocolate, semi-sweet or dark)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In medium mixing bowl, cream together softened butter, brown sugar, and sugar for 5 minutes until light and fluffy. Using a spatula, scrape down the sides of the bowl at least 2-3 times to ensure adequate mixing.

  2. Add vanilla, egg, egg yolk, and peanut butter, and mix for 1 minute longer.

  3. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt until just mixed. Avoid overmixing. Fold in chocolate chips or chunks.

  4. Scoop onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. I suggest using light-colored baking sheets. If you want thinner cookies, I suggest pressing the cookie dough with the bottom of a cup or a spoon. Bake for 9-10 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before placing on a cooling rack.

Recipe Notes

  • I prefer to use Guittard or Ghirardelli chocolate chips
  • If you want to use chocolate chunks, I suggest chopping up a high-quality chocolate bar. I use the Trader Joe's Milk Chocolate Pound Plus Bar.
