Sometimes you just need a good, old-fashioned cookie, and these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies are just that! Rich, dark chocolate is smoothed out by the taste of velvety peanut butter in every bite. —kjandcompany

What You'll Need
  • 16 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 11 ounces dark chocolate chips
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter, sugar and brown sugar together on medium speed until light and fluffy, about a couple minutes. Reduce the speed to low and add in one egg at a time, making sure to wipe down the sides and bottom of the bowl in between each addition. Mix in the vanilla extract and peanut butter on low speed until just combined.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. With the mixer speed on low, slowly add the flour mixture into the butter and peanut butter mixture. Mix until a dough has formed, about a minute.
  3. Using a rubber spatula, fold the chocolate chips into the dough until completely incorporated. Scoop the dough in rounded tablespoons onto a non-greased baking sheet, spacing them at least a couple inches apart. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until the tops are slightly golden brown and being careful to not over-cook the bottoms of the cookies.
  4. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow to cool for a couple minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to continue cooling. Enjoy!

I tried and followed it to the letter, the cookies came out light and crumbly not dense, more like a pâte sablé. Upon looking up for potential causes over Google I discovered that the recipe combined the wrong ingredients together.

Thanks for the effort but I won't bookmark it.
