The recipe for these cookies came from one of my favorite cookbook authors/chefs – Dorie Greenspan! My brother recently got me a copy of Dorie’s Cookies and of course I just had to try the peanut butter (that being my favorite cookie flavor and all…)
I followed the recipe faithfully, even using Skippy which was the recommended brand! But I swapped the chopped peanuts with chocolate chip cookies… (and halved the recipe while I was at it)
1 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
3/4 cup Skippy smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature, cut into chunks
1/4 teaspoon fine salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Combine flour, baking powder, and nutmeg; set aside.
Beat peanut butter, butter and salt together until very smooth. Add the sugars, continue beating. Add the egg and beat some more.
Stir in the flour mixture then fold in the chocolate chips.
Using a small cookie scoop, place dough mounds onto parchment or silicone lined cookie sheets.
Bake in a preheated 350F oven for 10 minutes or so; or until the cookie edges are set.
We loved the cookies!!!!! And again, the kid praised me for being the best in the kitchen!
