Quarantined and bored. Anyone else? I’ve been baking a ton of course, but mostly things that I already have a blog post for. I know I have several peanut butter and peanut butter and chocolate recipes but I don’t think I have quite a cookie like this one. These are so good and my husbands favorite combination. Always easy to make and everyone in your family will love! Especially in a time when we are all cooped up at home, and getting sick of each other, why not bake together and then enjoy it together?! So, without further typing, let’s bake!
What you will need:
Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temp
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
2 tablespoons milk
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips (I used half a 12 oz. bag of Nestle semi sweet)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. I another large bowl, beat together the sugar, peanut butter and butter until smooth and creamy. Add vanilla, egg and milk and beat until combined. Slowly beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfulls onto prepared cookie. Press with the tines of a fork to get that staple peanut butter cookie look. Bake for 9 minutes. Allow to cool a minute or two before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
Store covered at room temp.
