Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Yield: about 2 1/2 dozen Prep 15 mins Bake 375°F 15 mins per batch

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 bag (11.5 ounces) chocolate chunks

Make It

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. In a medium-size bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

2. In large bowl, beat together butter and peanut butter with an electric mixer until smooth. Beat in both kinds of sugar until pale-colored. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until smooth. On low speed, beat in flour mixture just until combined, or, alternately, stir in by hand. Add chocolate chunks and stir until evenly distributed.

3. Using a small scoop, form mounds of cookie dough on a large cookie sheet (about 12). Press down with a fork in a crosshatch pattern. Bake at 375 degrees F for 15 minutes or until browned. Cool on wire rack; repeat with all dough.
