Peanut butter, chocolate chips cookies

Is there anyone on the earth who hates cookies? is there anyone who can say no to delicious cookies? I am not sure if it exists. To me, the weekend is about comfort food, is about enjoying food with family and friends, is about tasting a chocolate cookie with a scope of ice cream on Sunday night in front of the TV.

I try to eat healthily as much as possible but for weekends some sugar & butter can make me happy. Don't you think? If you use a room tempreture butter, you need to use a room tempreture egg too and as it turns out, creamy or chunky peanut butters work. I generally buy “natural” peanut butters and this recipe has worked with all of them.

Tips to make cookies like a pro:

  1. Follow the recipe.

  2. Preheat the oven.

  3. Don't open the oven while the cookies are baking.

  4. Use a parchment papaer.


50 gr unsalted butter, room temperature

3 tbsp peanut butter

30 gr sugar

30 gr brown sugar

70 gr dark chocolate, chopped

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp baking powder

120 gr all-purpose flour

1 egg

a pinch of salt


Preheat your oven to 155°C.

In a bowl, add butter and sugars and with a spatula mix them well until becomes like a cream. Pastry chefs call this stage creaming.

Add peanut butter and continue mixing.

Add the egg and vanilla extract and whisk it well.

Add flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Use a fork to combine all the ingredients.

At this stage, you can add your chocolate and mix it with a spatula until you can see chocolate all over the dough.

Prepare a baking tray and add a parchment paper on it. Make small balls with your hand and place them on the paper.

Bake them in the oven for 12-13 minutes.
