Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
If you were to be a cookie, which one would you be? Lisa says I’m an Animal Cracker. I think I’m more of a Whoopie Pie, but whatever. What I think we can all agree on is that we aspire to be this incredibly delectable Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie. Not only is this drool-worthy dessert the perfect union of sweet and salty, a classic combo of peanut butter and chocolate, but it also has remarkably crisp edges paired with soft, tender centers. Bake ‘em up and discover that my sister, though I think she’s a Nutter Butter, really takes the biscuit when it comes to cookies.

1 cup butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups smooth peanut butter
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp kosher salt
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups peanut butter chips
1 cup roasted peanuts, chopped
1) Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2) Using an electric mixer, cream butter, brown sugar and sugar on medium speed. Add the eggs one at a time, beating until incorporated. Mix in vanilla extract and peanut butter, scraping down the sides of the bowl. On low speed, add the flour, baking soda, salt, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips and roasted peanuts. Mix just until the flour disappears, being careful not over-mix. Portion out 1/4 cup mounds of dough for each cookie on prepared baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes, just until the edges begin to brown. Cool cookies on a wire rack.
