There seems to be many new chocolate chip variations this year! When I was shopping last week, I came across peanut butter chips mixed with chocolate chips, and thought ooh peanut butter chocolate chip cookies! Hence the recipe:
Peanut butter chocolate chip cookies
(adapted from Katie Lee Joel’s The Comfort Table)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup light borwn sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 1/2 cup Nestle peanut butter chip and chocolate chip mix
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a separate bowl sift together four, baking powder, and salt.
In a stand mixer whip the butter until fluffy. Add sugars and beat until smooth. Add the egg and beat until well incorporated. Add the vanilla and peanut butter and mix well. Slowly add the flour mixture, mixing on low speed. Lastly mix in the peanut butter chips and chocolate chips. It should look like this:
Finally, using a tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop the dough onto silpat or parchment lined cookie sheets about an inch a part. Bake for 10 minutes until lightly golden on the bottom.
Let cool on the cookie sheet for three minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
