- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup peanut butter at room temperature (smooth and chunky both work)
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar (I used dark brown and it was good!)
- 1 large egg, at room temperature
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- For sprinkling: 1 tablespoon sugar, regular or superfine
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Then in a large bowl, mix together the flour, the baking soda, the baking powder, and the salt.
- In another large bowl, beat together the butter and the peanut butter until they are fully mixed and begin to be fluffy. Add in the sugar and brown sugar and mix together until fully combined. Then add the egg, and mix until fully incorporated. Then add the milk and vanilla extract and mix until combined. Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined, and then stir in the peanut butter and chocolate chips.
- Place sprinkling sugar (about 1 tablespoon of sugar) on a plate. Drop the cookie dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into the sugar,and then put them on ungreased cookie sheets. Allow space in between the cookies. Then use a fork to flatten each cookie, making a crossed pattern on top, but leave each cookie still slightly rounded. Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes. Try not to overbake them - they may still look a little underdone when you pull them out but they will firm up after taking them out of the oven.
- Allow them to cool a bit on their baking sheets and then move them to a cooling rack to fully cool down.
It has been nothing but rain, rain, rain here for the past, oh, 2 weeks. Honestly, it hasn’t been bothering me much – as long as it’s not cold outside, I don’t mind the rain. It feels refreshing and maybe being from Arizona makes me appreciate it more. I know when summer hits and we are all outside in the blazing sun we will be wishing for weather like this!
The rain does mean more staying inside though, and staying inside often makes me want to cook and bake. I actually made these chocolate chip peanut butter cookies a while back, but have been waiting to share them here.
