Peanut butter and Chocolate = match made in heaven!

I’m a BIG fan of peanut butter and chocolate.

This recipe is pretty simple and super delicious.  The mix of salty-sweet is perfection.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes 29 cookies:  About 135 calories per cookie

Adapted from The Pastry Affair

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1/4 scant cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1  1/2 cups semisweet mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.  Add the egg, vanilla, and peanut butter.  Beat until smooth.  Mix in the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Using a cookie-scoop,  drop the cookies onto a greased (or parchment paper covered) cookie sheet.  Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned.

So delicious.  Try not to devour the whole pan yourself…it’d be so easy…
