Who doesn’t love the lip-smacking duo of peanut butter and chocolate? These cookies will fly off the serving plate when you bring them out for a crowd.

Ingredients

sugar

1 cup(s), granulated

regular butter

¼ cup(s), at room temperature

chunky peanut butter without salt

½ cup(s)

egg(s)

2 large

vanilla extract

½ tsp(s)

table salt

½ tsp(s)

baking soda

½ tsp(s)

whole-grain wheat flour

1 cup(s)

milk chocolate chips

1 oz

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Coat 2 cookie sheets with cooking spray or cover with parchment paper.
  2. Place sugar, butter and peanut butter in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; blend well with mixer.
  3. Add salt, baking soda and flour to sugar mixture; beat until completely incorporated.
  4. Drop batter by heaping teaspoons onto prepared cookie sheets and flatten with the back of a wooden spoon. Make sure to leave about 2 inches between each cookie. (Bake several batches to prevent over-crowding if necessary.) Place a chocolate chunk in centre of each cookie.
  5. Bake cookies until edges brown, about 10 to 11 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheet for another 1 or 2 minutes; remove cookies to a wire rack and cool completely. Yields 1 cookie per serving.
