Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar and 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • l tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped peanuts(find the kind seasoned with sea salt)
  • 1 cup of really good quality chocolate chips.
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F
  2. Beat butter, peanut butter , sugars until thoroughly blended. Add the eggs one and a time and then the vanilla.
  3. Combine the flour and baking soda and add to the butter mixture. Mix until just blended. Stir in peanuts and chocolate chips.
  4. Drop by the heaping tablespoonfuls (20 ml) , 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on a parchment covered cookie sheet. Moisten your finger tips and gently pat into a neat, flat circle.
  5. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden. Cool for 5 minutes on the sheet and then transfer to rack and cool completely. If you find your cookies are browning too quickly on the bottom stack two cookie sheets together. Cool cookies completely on a wire rack or they will soften when stored.
Notes
Chef's Notes: For a crisper cookie, increase the baking time by 2 minutes. If you accidentally over bake a batch of cookies but haven't burned them, crumble them and sprinkle over fruit, ice cream or yogurt.
