This is a great recipe for making with the kids. This cookie recipes uses pantry staples so you can make them whenever your heart desires.

Ingredients Overview:

  • All-purpose flour. You can also make these cookies using a combination of whole wheat pastry and all-purpose flour. Since this recipe uses one cup of flour, I like to use half a cup of of each.
  • Baking soda and salt
  • Unsalted butter 
  • Brown sugar
  • Creamy peanut butter
  • Egg 
  • Vanilla extract
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips

Steps Overview:

  2. In a medium sized bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt, set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter and brown sugar until well combined.
  4. Add the peanut butter and beat until blended, add in the egg and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy.
  5. Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the flour mixture. Mix until the dough comes together, add the chocolate chips and stir to combine.
  6. Scoop the cookie dough and place dough on the baking sheet about two inches apart. Using your fingers, press down on the cookie dough balls to flatten them a bit.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes or until tops are set and cookies are lightly golden on the bottom. Remove the cookies from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before moving them onto a rack to cool completely.
