Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 24
Ingredients
  • ½ pound (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ¾ cup dark brown sugar
  • ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup roasted, salted peanuts crushed
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375˚F
  2. In an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugars until fluffy. Add peanut butter and beat until fully incorporated.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time and beat until each is well blended.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients in 3 batches, mixing with a spoon until fully incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips and vanilla.
  5. Drop in large tablespoons onto a cookie sheet. I was able to fit about 8 cookies on each cookie sheet.
  6. Spoon a little bit of the crushed nuts onto the top of each cookies and press gently with your fingers.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Watch closely near the end. The edges should just be browning and the middle will appear a little soft.
  8. Remove and let cool for a couple of minutes before transferring to a plate or cooling rack.
Notes
Makes 4 batches of 8 cookies. Takes 40 minutes if you cook the batches one after the other.
