COOKING METHOD: Baking
Course Dessert, Snack
Servings 24 cookies
Prep Time 25 minutes
Baking Time 10 minutes

Ingredients
  

  • cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup peanut butter (Don’t use natural butter, it results in dry cookies)
  • ¼ cup butter, salted or unsalted is fine
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt (only 1/8 tsp if using salted butter)
  • ½ cup chocolate, chopped (or M&Ms!)
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup peanuts, chopped

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Prepare 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or baking liners. Set aside. 
  • 2. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Stir to combine. 
  • 3. In a large separate mixing bowl, cream butter. Once creamed, add white and brown sugars and mix well. Add peanut butter. With an electric mixer, cream together until well combined. 
  • 4. Add egg and vanilla and blend together. 
  • 5. Slowly add and mix in flour mixture on low speed. 
  • 6. Stir in chocolate, raisins and chopped peanuts. Mix until evenly distributed throughout the dough. Dough may be slightly crumbly. That’s normal. 
  • 7. Scoop about 2 tbsps worth of dough and roll into a ball. Place onto baking sheet. You should be able to make 24 balls, spaced 2″ apart. (12 on each sheet).
  • 8. Gently press down on dough balls with a fork.
  • 9. Bake for about 10 minutes. Cookies should still be soft but ever so slightly golden on the edges.
  • 10. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes to harden before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. 

Notes

  • These cookies are best eaten within a couple of days, but you can freeze them! 
  • Feel free to change up the mix-ins. Just ensure to keep the same measurement ratio (1 &  cup total).
