I found this recipe on al.com. It comes from a lady name Caroline Grant - a freelance recipe creater for Oxmoor House. What a great job!! In the article it said she is known for her "knock-out desserts" and one of her signature desserts is Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chunk Cookies. I am looking for a new treat to take to St. Augustine for the ladies at the SAS Store and I thought these might do the trick!
Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chunk Cookies
- 3/4 butter (1 1/2 sticks), softened
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 2 eggs
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup peanut butter morsels
- 1 1/2 (11.5-ounce) packages semi-sweet chocolate chunks
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat butter, sugars, and vanilla at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth and fluffy. Add peanut butter, beating until combined. Add eggs; beat well.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture, beating just until blended.
Stir in peanut butter morsels and chocolate chunks.
Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on baking sheets; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Yield: about 4 dozen cookies.
