Thursday Treats: Dangerous Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies {Pinterest--Nikki}

Dangerous Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
{Pinterest Find}

1/2 cup butter, unsalted
1/3 heaping cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg, room temperature
1 egg yolk, room temperature
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1+1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

--Oven Temp @ 325--

1. Melt the butter and peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl at 50% power until mostly melted. Remove from microwave and stir until the butter is completely melted and smooth, then set aside to let cool.
2. In a mixing bowl fitted with the paddle attachment (or using a wooden spoon), mix the cooled peanut butter and butter mixture with the sugars until fully incorporated. Beat in the egg, yolk and vanilla until combined.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add to the sugar/butter mix until a dough forms. Fold in the chocolate chips.
4. I used my cookie scoop to make evenly sized balls of dough and baked for 8-10 minutes. You don't want to over bake these.

These were so good, and got rave reviews by all who tried them. This is my favourite PB chocolate chip cookie and have made them at least 3 times now--with plans to make many more batches! :D
