Tuesday, May 7, 2019

Chocolate chip cookies are just a staple recipe that everyone should have in their repertoire, but sometimes you may be looking for a jazzier version that offers something a little different and today's recipe is just that!

These peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are soft, chewy and gooey...everything I'm looking for in a perfect homemade cookie.

Salted Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
{Yield: 24 cookies}

1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter, softened to room temperature
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla bean paste
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Course sea salt (Kosher or Maldon)

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.

Using a standup mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the softened butter for 2 minutes until light and fluffy.  Add the peanut butter and sugars and mix for about a minute.  Add the egg and vanilla bean paste and beat until combined.

Turn the mixer to a low speed and add the flour and baking soda and mix until just combined, being careful to not over mix!  Then stir in the chocolate chips.

Using a cookie scoop, scoop the cookie dough onto the parchment paper or Silpat lined baking sheet and sprinkle the tops of the cookies with sea salt.  Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned, but still soft in the center.  Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool, then enjoy!
