I do not bake cookies very often. I have always had more luck with cakes than cookies for some reason. But every once in a while, a cookie recipe will really stick with me. This is one of them. This was featured on the “Martha Stewart Living” television show on April 13, 1998. It was supposedly her daughter’s favorite and I can see why. This is the best of both worlds with the soft chewy peanut butter cookie with a few chocolate chips thrown in for good measure.
1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. With an electric mixer, cream butter with the 2 sugars.
Add peanut butter, eggs, and vanilla.
Sift together flour and baking soda. Stop mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add dry ingredients at low speed.
Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto a prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 10-13 minutes per batch.
Would anyone care for a cold glass of milk to go along with these?
