Peanut butter cookies are Paco’s favorite, and I usually add chocolate chips to them for good measure. Today I decided to mix things up a bit by making chocolate cookies with peanut butter chips. The chocolately cookies are perfect with a glass of milk.
Chocolate Cookies with Peanut Butter
(Makes 2 dozen)
1/2 c of butter, softened (1 stick)
3/8 c brown sugar
3/8 c granulated sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 c of flour
1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
1 c peanut butter chips (or a combination of peanut butter chips and chocolate chips)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Combine the butter, sugars, and vanilla until creamy. Add the egg and mix to combine. Add the salt, baking soda, cocoa powder, and flour, and stir until fully combined. Stir in the peanut butter chips.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop the dough onto the cookie sheet by rounded teaspoonfuls, two inches apart. Bake for 9-11 minutes.
