How to make Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

  • Preheat Oven: To 350 degrees F.
  • Make Batter: In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment cream butter and both sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add in peanut butter and mix for 1-2 minutes. Add in egg and vanilla. Mix until combined and clump free. Combine flour, salt and baking soda in a small bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the batter in two parts with the stand mixer on the lowest speed. Mix for a little less than a minute. Do not over mix. Fold in chocolate chunks.
  • Bake: Portion dough into 12-16 cookies depending on how big you want them. Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes until lightly golden brown and firm on the edges.
  • Cool: Allow them to cool for 2-3 minutes on the baking sheet then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Store: Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 3-5 days or can be frozen for up to 3-4 months.

Tips for making the BEST cookies

  • Room temperature Ingredients: I also like to wait until the butter is completely softened and the egg is at room temperature before mixing everything up. This ensures a smooth batter and an awesome cookie!
  • Shorter cooking time: I always like to slightly under bake my cookies. Once they look set around the edges I take them out of the oven and let them continue to cook for 5 minutes longer on the baking sheet. Then I transfer them to a cooling rack to cool completely. This gives you a soft and chewy cookie!
  • Extra Chocolate Chips: When the cookies come out of the oven I like to place some chocolate chips on top for presentation.
  • Overnight Chill: These cookies can be made a day or two in advance. The longer the cookie dough sits the more the flavors develop.
