Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Ingredients

  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup dark-brown sugar, tightly packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature

Instructions

  1. 1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter, peanut butter, and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and mix on medium speed until combined. Sift flour and baking soda together, and add to butter mixture, beating just to combine. Fold in chocolate chunks.

    2. Using a 1 1/2-ounce ice cream scoop, form dough, and place on a baking sheet lined with a nonstick baking mat (Silpat), pressing down slightly to flatten. Bake until golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container up to 1 week.
