  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter creamy or chunky up to you
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Using the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl attached to a stand mixer.
  3. Mix in the egg until combined, then add in the peanut butter and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  4. Whisk the dry ingredients together then add to the butter mixture, mixing together thoroughly.
  5. Mix in the chocolate chips by hand until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  6. Using an ice cream scoop, fill the scoop until it's full, flattening the bottom until it's level with the straight edge of the scoop.
  7. Place by rounded cookie scoop onto parchment lined baking sheets.
  8. Bake in the oven for 14-15 minutes, or until golden brown all over.
  9. Remove from the oven.
  10. The cookies should still be in a dome shape.
  11. Using a flat spatula or egg flipper etc, press each cookie down until evenly flat. They should be about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch thick.
  12. Leave the cookies on the trays to cool completely after flattening.
  13. Enjoy your super thick and chewy peanut butter chocolate chip cookies!
  14. Store in a container for 3-5 days, but I doubt they will last that long.
