In my never ending quest to find ways to combine peanut butter and chocolate, I give to you these yummy cookies. I made them for Dream Day Spa’s clients last week. There were a few left overs and I truly would’ve bitten anyone who tried to take them away from me. My girls snuck a few. It was OK, because I’ve admitted I have a problem. I seriously have no will power when it comes to this food combination. Why didn’t I invent Reese’s?
1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup additional to roll cookies
1 stick butter, at room temperature
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a baking sheet. In a large bowl, cream together sugar and butter. Beat in egg to mixture. Mix in peanut butter and vanilla until smooth and creamy. Stir in salt, baking soda and flour until well combined. Add chocolate chips just until mixed in. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and then roll in sugar. Place on baking sheet and flatten with fork. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
